How The Pandemic Slowed Progress For Black Women’s Pay Equity

Many Black women, especially mothers, have had to take on coronavirus-related financial stresses as the sole or primary breadwinners of their households.
Black women make 63 cents to every dollar white men make. Viewed another way, it takes an extra eight months and three days for Black women to make what white men made the prior calendar year. According to the National Women’s Law Center, this disparity has only closed three cents in the past 30 years.
It also takes Black women longer to find work than their white peers. Over the course of a 40-year career, Black women lose out on $946,120.
