Blacks Still Paid Less Than Whites at Every Education Level

a new study says. The report, published by the Economic Policy Institute, concretizes what many African-Americans have felt for decades: although a college education results in higher wages, equally educated and qualified whites still earn more. As of 2015, relative to the average hourly wages of white men with the same education, experience, metro status, and region of residence, Black men make 22.0 percent less, and Black women make 34.2 percent less. The trend is something that has worsened over time. In 1979, the wage gap was only 16.9 percent. “We’ve found that racial wage gaps are growing primarily due to discrimination—and other unmeasured and unobserved characteristics—along with rising inequality in general,” the authors of the study said. “In order to fully address racial wage gaps, direct action must be taken to decrease discrimination and address the problem of stagnant wages across the board.”  ]]>
