African-American and Latino retail industry employees earn lower wages than their white colleagues, according to a new study.

The report, released on Tuesday by public policy group Demos and the NAACP, found that retailers pay black and Hispanic full-time salespeople about 75% of what they pay white workers in the same positions. Meanwhile, Black and Hispanic cashiers make about 90% of what their white colleagues earn.
