Despite Equal Pay Act, Native American Women Make Ridiculously Low Wages


According to the Huffington Post, September 28th is America's Native Women Equal Pay Day. To catch up to the average white man's wages, a Native American woman needs to work nine extra months! It's been illegal since 1963 for employers to pay any employee less based only on their gender. More than 50 years have passed, but wage disparities between men and women in the U.S. persist. Experts say America’s gender wage gap won’t close until 2059 if its trajectory remains on the current course. Today, American women on average are paid 80 cents for every dollar men earn. Black women are paid just 63 cents to the white man’s dollar. Native women make a paltry 57 cents.
