#GoodRead | Here's what time American women would leave the office if they stopped working when their gendered pay deficit kicks in
According to the U.S. Census Bureau (hardly a feminist conspiracy coven), women make 79 cents for every $1 men earn. Let's take the simpler Icelandic model and say that this means that a woman working eight hours — from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. — would leave work after completing 6.32 hours. That is, she would leave after 3 p.m.
Yet that is not, in fact, the statistic for all American women, but for white American women. Black women earn 60 cents for every $1 a white man makes, which means they would leave the office before 2 p.m. And Hispanic women earn 55 cents for every dollar a white man makes, which means that they should leave shortly after 1 p.m.
