Women Earn Less
Latin American women, as well as ethnic workers, earn much less than do white men. This does not seem that surprising to me, but I thought it related well to the article we read in our Global Studies textbook about women in Venezuela and the rest of Latin America. Also interesting was that Brazil has the largest income gap between men and women of the same age and education level. This problem is obviously not unique to Latin America as wage discrimination exists everywhere, including the US.
