reports for Forbes. "Compared to white men, African American women, on average, are paid only 60 cents on the dollar. Latinas are paid only 55 cents on the dollar. The gap only worsens as women age. While women between 18 and 24 earn 88 percent of what their male counterparts earn, women over age 35 earn only 76 percent of what men their age make."
Overall, women earn 79 cents for every dollar earned by men, up from 59 cents in 1974. In every state a significant gap still exists.
