According to Forbes, "Latinas make just 53 cents for every dollar the average white, non-Hispanic man makes. Compare that to the 79 cents white women earn on average compared to white men, and the 63 cents that black women make. Latina women must work 305 extra days into the next calendar year just to earn what the average white man earns in a year."
