Latina Equal Pay Day is October 5. This year, we are observing Latina Equal Pay Day during Latine Heritage Month. With a pay gap of 52 cents for every dollar made by white, non-Hispanic men, Latinas are not caught up. Together, we demand more for ourselves and our communities.
Justice for Migrant Women issued a report with new data that seeks to tell a more complete story of the pay gap, considering data for populations such as rural Latinas and immigrants.

In 2022, for the first time, wage gap calculations included 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 2022 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.
