It's wider now than it was in 1979.By Eugene Daniels | September 21, 2016
The wage gap between black people and white people has stretched a lot over the past 40 years.
The wage gap is at 26.7 percent. And a new study says that's with all things equal, including education, experience and location.
In 1979, the gap was just 18 percent. When you adjust for inflation, black people were making $16.07 an hour while their white counterparts took home $19.62.
