Inside the Asian American Pacific Islander Women's Pay Gap: Legislative Approaches and Proactive Measures of Employers

March 5, 2019 is Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Women’s Equal Pay Day. This marks the day in the new year to which AAPI women overall must work to earn what white, non-Hispanic men on average earned in 2018. AAPI women earn just 85 cents to every dollar earned by white, non-Hispanic men. The average wage gaps in several AAPI ethnic subgroups are even larger. For instance, Hmong and Cambodian women earn on average just 59 and 62 cents to the dollar, respectively.
