Wealth Disparity Between Women of Color and White Women (Via Democracy Now!)

I wrote a post about this and then it didn’t post. I’ll let you read/watch this report, these women are very articulate.

I will point y’all to the Wage Project (wageproject.org). This is an initiative aimed at young women getting their first jobs or women switching careers. It teaches women how to negiate for fair pay and tells women what salaries are appropriate for certain jobs in certain geographic locations.  

Although using the Wage Project will not reverse the wealth gap, it will empower women and hopefully close the gender and race gap in income. Eventually, the increased income will lead to increased wealth for all disparate groups.
