There's good news for women in the workplace. A new study by the Pew Research Center finds that the pay gap is closing between men and women, especially for millennials.

But one specific stat in this research caught our eye. Out of all women, about half of blacks and Latinas say they wanted to be the boss. Meanwhile only 29 percent of white women said the same thing.

Kim Parker, associate director of the Social & Demographic Trends Project at the Pew Research Center, joins the show to explain these results.
