### "Whenever I hear the "Women are paid \$.78 for the man’s \$1" I flip it around. Men make \$1.22 for every woman’s \$1. It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …"

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make \$1.28 for every woman’s \$1

A white man makes \$1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes \$1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes \$1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes \$1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes \$1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
