Black women have to work harder to obtain a white man’s monthly salary in just a year. Black women, regarding pay gaps, face a unique discrimination, specifically because race and gender. There are some reasons why there are gaps between men/women and colored/whites, but these reasons are not good reasons. In all fields Black women work in, they are always fighting for something to go their way. They face so many problems in the work environment that men/white people wouldn’t face. This type of discrimination dates back to slavery/post-slavery. Black women have had the highest labor force but least amount of pay, and this observation has been recorded for years. Put into simple terms, Black women are just not equal to white men and should not be working in white men’s jobs. Black women are always left out of the equation and simply not cared for. They deserve concrete action steps that prioritize fair pay and economic stability for themselves and their families. Equal pay for Black women is long overdue—and it cannot afford another year’s wait.
