April 4th was “Equal Pay Day” — a symbolic day paraded by liberals to raise awareness for the gender pay gap. The date is supposed to symbolize how far into a year women must work to earn as much as a man.
This year on “Equal Pay Day”, our friends over at the Free Beacon exposed “Equal Pay Day” ‘egalitarian’ Elizabeth Warren for having a wider pay gap than the national average:
“The gender pay gap in Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) 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.
….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.
The Beacon also noted of all of her employees, only one female employee had a six-figure salary while five men had a six-figure salary.
And that’s not all…IT GETS EVEN BETTER:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) failed to acknowledge Equal Pay Day for the first time in her Senate career after it was reported on Tuesday that women working in her Senate office earned just 71 percent of what was earned by men.
This year, Warren was the only female Democratic senator who ignored Equal Pay Day entirely, and it was not due to a lack of opportunity.
She delivered a nearly 10 minute speech Tuesday afternoon and made no mention of equal pay. The topic of speeches during the session was the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch, but that didn’t stop fellow Democratic Senators Mazie Hirono (Hawaii), Tammy Duckworth (Ill.), or Kamala Harris (Calif.) from acknowledging Equal Pay Day.
Warren didn’t even bother to send out a tweet recognizing Equal Pay Day—setting her apart from the other 15 Democratic women in the Senate.
How do you beat liberals into submission? Call out their hypocrisy. That’s exactly what we will keep doing.
