Latina Equal Pay Day (Nov. 1) is the day on which average Latina earnings catch up to what the average white male earned in 2015. Working Latinas earn just 54 cents to the dollar earned by white men, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Latinas who are immigrants face an even more dire situation. They are paid just 37 cents to the dollar paid to a white male worker, while countless women actually receive no money at all for their work because of rampant wage theft that is committed against working immigrant women, especially undocumented working immigrant women.
