Equal Pay for Black Women

The National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Delaware Chapter announces that July 31st, 2017, is Equal Pay Day for Black Women.

July 31st is Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, the day that marks how long into 2017 an African American woman would have to work in order to be paid the same wages as her white male counterpart was paid last year.  Black women are uniquely positioned to be subjected to both a racial pay gap and a gender pay gap.  In fact, on average, black women workers are paid only 67 cents on the dollar relative to white non-Hispanic men, even after controlling for education, years of experience, and location.
