ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
Every year on November 1st is Latina Equal Pay Day. That means Latinas had to work all of 2017 and until this day in 2018 to catch up with what white men earned in 2017 alone.
No matter what their job, where they live, or how much education or experience they have, Latinas are still paid less than white men. Get the facts about the pay gap and its impact on Latinas and their families, learn more,
HELP US CLOSE THIS PAY GAP
This is one of the many reasons why Latina Professionals of Chattanooga was started. Unfortunately women in general make far less than men, however for us, Latinas, the wage gap is even wider.
Instead of 80 cents to the white man’s dollar, Latina women only make 54 cents for every dollar that a white man earns. Yes, you read that right. This means that Latinas have to work just shy of two years in order to make what a white man earns in one.
Help us close this huge pay gap for Latinas, November 1st. Join leaders, advocates and influencers across the nation who are pledging to take action as champions of gender parity, not only for Latina Equal Pay Day, but for every day.
