Today is Black’s Women Equal Pay Day. It is not a day for celebration. Instead, a day of concern. A Black woman must work 20 months to earn the same $1.00 that men earned in 2019. Native American women will have to work 21 months for the same dollar and Latina women 23 months. Asian women earn the same dollar in 14 months.
