Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) Women’s Equal Pay Day
March 9, 2022
March 9 is #AAPIEqualPay Day—the approximate day in 2021 when the average Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) woman working full-time year round finally catches up to what the average white, non-Hispanic man earned in 2020.
Because AAPI women are paid only 85 cents on average for every dollar paid to white men, this means AAPI women must work a total of 15 months to earn what white men earn in just 12.
