Wage Gap

According to the US Census Bureau, the average woman who works full time, year round makes just 78 percent (.78 on the man’s dollar) of what a man makes.

This average is calculated after considerations of race. The following is a breakdown of wage gap figures for women when factoring race identities compared to the man’s dollar:

  • White Men: $1.00 (100%)
  • Asian American Women: $.90 (90%)
  • White Women: $.89 (89%)
  • Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Women: $.65 (65%)
  • African American Women: $.64 (64%)
  • American Indian or Alaska Native Women: $.59 (59%)
  • Latina or Hispanic Women: $.54 (54%)
