This year, for the first time, data calculations include part time and full time workers. This is more inclusive as many people working in migrant, seasonal or gig work are not counted as "full time workers" in the U.S. Census data. It is important because some women, like those who migrate across local, regional or international borders for work, sometimes face even wider wage gaps.
Latinas stand to lose at least one million dollars over the course of a lifetime.
Join us this year as we keep working for good data, good wages and safe workplaces.
In 2022, for the first time, wage gap calculations include earnings data from both full-time and part-time workers. By using a more expansive definition of workers from data that already exists, the wage gap calculation includes 33 million additional working women. For Latinas, a more inclusive wage gap calculation illustrates a truer depiction of the state of all Latinas working in the United States. Data presented in this research explores median annual earnings for Latinas across sectors, ethnicity, sexual orientation and country of origin for full time, year round; part time; and part year workers. Read more about the gender wage gap and how it affects Latinas.
