What Color Is Your Paycheck? Race and Wages in Ohio
December 10, 2002
What Color Is Your Paycheck? tracks a growing racial wage gap over the last two decades in Ohio. The median black worker in Ohio earns just 83 cents to the median white worker’s dollar. In fact, black workers in Ohio are more likely to hold poverty wage jobs, more likely to be unemployed, and less likely to earn wages as high as white workers with similar levels of education. This report points to policy that can help remedy these disturbing trends.
