Turns out that equal-pay problem is even worse for women of color. Time to change that, eh?
As the White House so eloquently states:
"Equal pay is a family issue. Women make up nearly half of the U.S. labor force and are a growing number of breadwinners in their families. More women are also working in positions and fields that have been traditionally occupied by men. When women are not paid fairly, not only do they suffer, but so do their families."
