From the National Partnership for Women and Families (http://www.nationalpartnership.org/site/PageServer):
A new analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data conducted by the National Partnership shows that African American women and Latinas are suffering from a pervasive gender-based wage gap in the very states where most work. Check out our infographic (http://www.nationalpartnership.org/site/PageServer?pagename=CentsAndInsensibility) and blog post (http://blog.nationalpartnership.org/index.php/2013/01/fair-pay-an-economic-imperative-for-women-of-color/) for more.
That’s why we strongly support the Paycheck Fairness Act, legislation that will be reintroduced in Congress today. Urge your members of Congress to support fair pay at https://secure2.convio.net/npwf/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=767.
