Non-White Workers Grossly Underpaid at Tech Companies

Tech Companies Are Severely Underpaying Their Non-White Workers

As tech corporations began releasing a slew of disappointing diversity reports this year, most companies apologized for their numbers and pledged to do a better job at being inclusive. Those pledges didn't mention the part where the tech industry systematically underpays non-White, non-male workers. A recent study by the American Institute for Economic Research found that having the "wrong" skin color costs tech workers thousands of dollars per year:

In the computer technology industry, on average, a Hispanic worker in this group of six occupations earns $16,353 less than a non-Hispanic worker. This is a larger differential in earnings than racial groups of color, such as Blacks (whose earnings are expected to be $3,656 less than White workers), Asians (whose earnings are expected to be $8,146 less than White workers), and workers who identified "other" as their race ($6,907 less than Whites).
