From Fox News: The gender pay gap in Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s office is
nearly 10 percent wider than the national average, meaning women in the
Massachusetts Democrat’s office will have to wait longer than most women
across the country to recognize Equal Pay Day.
Equal Pay Day, created two decades ago by the National Committee on Pay
Equity, is scheduled by using the Census Bureau annual unadjusted gender
pay gap to determine how far into the next year women would have to
work to match annual earnings of men. Last year’s figures, showing that
women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on
Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year.
However, women working for Warren were paid just 71 cents for every
dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year, according to a
Washington Free Beacon analysis.
The median annual earnings for women staffers, $52,750, was more than
$20,000 less than the median annual earnings for men, $73,750, according
to the analysis of publicly available Senate data.
When calculated using average salaries rather than median, the pay gap expands to just over $26,051, or about 31 percent.
So much for all that blithering about Equal pay for Women...More Hypocrisy from the Loony party.
