Democrats in Congress Pay Women Less than their Male Counterparts

bcd8ff90e267f36493ed5fecde82b2f9Democrats in Congress would be better off silencing themselves with their pretend “War on Women” meme for it is the Democrat Party who pays women less – including Barack Obama and his White House staff, which pays men about $10,000, or 13 percent, more on average, according to a previous Free Beacon analysis..

 

 

  1. Patty Murray (D., Wash.) has repeatedly accused Republicans of waging a “war a women,” is one of the worst offenders. Female members of Murray’s staff made about $21,000 less per year than male staffers in 2011, a difference of 33.8 percent.
  1. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) has a significant “gender gap” in her office, where women also made about $21,000 less than men in 2011, but the percentage difference—41 percent—was even higher than Murray’s.
  1. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.)—Boxer’s female staffers made about $5,000 less, a difference of 7.3 percent.
  1. Democrats. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who runs the Senate Democratic messaging operation, paid men $19,454 more on average, a 36 percent difference.

5. Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) paid men $13,063 more, a difference of 23  percent.
