Latina Equal Pay Day is a day where we recognize the huge income disparity in what Latina women make in comparison to men.
This year Latina Equal Pay Day is officially November 1st (that’s today🙌🏼). It is also a day where we voice how unjust this is and attempt to gain the attention (and change) from the powers that be.
HERE IS THE REALITY:
“Latinas account for close to $1 trillion in U.S. buying power, but earn on average only 53 cents to the dollar paid to men.”
“It is estimated that Latina workers stand to lose more than $1 million over a 40-year period due to the wage gap.”
“Latinas would have to work 74 more years to earn the same amount as white non-Hispanic men.”

THE ULTIMATE DETAIL FOR WINNING ON LATINA EQUAL PAY DAY (today and beyond):
Although our voices have gotten stronger and advocacy efforts about the unjust inequality has improved over the years, it is not enough. We need to do more than advocate.
We can advocate all we want and some change may happen, but the bigger change comes when we do the work from within.
Working from within requires a better understanding of your own personal finances, which provides clarity and that in turn increases your financial confidence.
When you are financially confident and clear on your finances there is no doubt in my mind that you will ask for more money and become a better negotiator (aka contribute in shrinking that wage gap).
Why? Because you know where you stand financially and know exactly what it will take to get to where you want to be. Plus, with that confidence, there is no stopping you!
