When people of color ask for raises, they’re a lot less likely than white workers to get the salary bump they request, according to a new study by PayScale, a firm that analyzes compensation data.

Women of color, a group that includes African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics and other nonwhite people, are 19 percent less likely than white men to get the raise they ask for, according to the survey of about 160,000 respondents. Nonwhite men were 25 percent more likely to be turned down for a salary increase.
