The Price of Women’s Inequality

After decades of arguing they’re vital to the U.S. workforce, women remain wedged in the lower ranks of organizations. According to this study by the Center for American Progress, they’ve seen very little movement. For Latinas, it’s even lower:

$518—the median weekly earnings for Latinas compared to white women ($703), black women ($595), and Asian women ($751).

It’s one of the many reasons Latinas leave corporate America and are six times more likely than the national average to start a new business.

As a country, we all pay a steep price for this continued trend – or rather – reality. It’s a price that we cannot afford to pay for much longer.
