The Pay Gap

Last Tuesday was ‘Equal Pay Day’: it marks the number of extra days into 2018 that an average woman (in the US) has to work to earn as much as her male counterpart did in 2017. (In a way, it resembles Earth Overshoot Day.) The internet is flooded by visuals showing the pay gap. The visual above shows how white American women are paid just 80 cents for every dollar earned by men. But African America and Latinas earn even less. It also shows Asian men make slightly more than the average American men. (source)
