Elizabeth Warren Again Calls For ‘Equal Pay,’ Ignores Pay Gap In Own Office

Warren’s women staffers earned 71 cents for each dollar earned by men in 2016

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) spoke out on the issue of gender pay equality in a speech on Thursday without noting the equal pay shortcomings in her own senate office, where women earned a fraction of what was earned by men in 2016.

In an address to liberal activists of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Warren said that she is continually reminded on Capitol Hill that she needs to push equal pay.

“Boy, do they keep reminding me about this on Capitol Hill the need to say this,” Warren said on Thursday. “We believe in equal pay for equal work.”

CNN Explains The Reason For The WH Pay Gap, And It’s Not Sexism

CNN reported on the White House pay gap as though men and women working the same jobs are paid differently, but the fourth paragraph of their report tells a different story.

In its Monday article titled, “White House pays women 80 cents for every dollar paid to men,” CNN wrote that “women working in the White House earn an average salary of 80 cents for every dollar paid to their male colleagues,” adding those numbers reflect a “gender pay gap wider than the national average of 82 cents on the dollar.”

BOOM! How Feminists Are To Blame For The REAL Gender Gap

From Regan Pifer: Ahhhh, that supposed wage gap that alllll the women love to point to and complain about. But is it actually true?

The Wall Street Journalrecently reported it is not. At least it isn’t the case for female CEOs. Though there are lessfemale CEOs, they are paid better–yes, better–than their male counterpart.

Everyone’s side is hurting–because they have leaned in enough.

The article reports:

In an unusual reversal of the gender pay gap, female chief executives at some of the largest U.S. companies repeatedly outearn their male counterparts. Last year, 21 female CEOs received a median compensation package of $13.8 million, compared with the $11.6 million median for 382 male chiefs, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of S&P 500 leaders who held the job a full year.

Women in the corner office at the biggest American firms made more money than men in six of the past seven years, though the gap has narrowed since 2014.

GENDER WAGE GAP? More Young Men ‘Falling To The Bottom Of The Income Ladder’

While feminists continue to promote the thoroughly debunked 23 percent “gender wage gap” myth, statistical data from the U.S. Census Bureau reveals a troubling trend among young men: “More young men are falling to the bottom of the income ladder.”

A new U.S. Census Bureau analysis found that over the last four decades, young men have seen their income decline dramatically, despite working full-time at the same rate and being bettereducated than before. Since 1975, the study found, the percentage of young men who are making less than $30,000 per year has risen significantly:

Since 1975, young men have swelled the ranks at the bottom of the income distribution. Some 41 percent of all men aged 25 to 34 have incomes less than $30,000 today, up from 25 percent in 1975. Growth at the bottom, and to a smaller extent the top, came at the expense of the middle. Between 1975 and 2016, the share of young men with incomes in the middle ($30,000 to $59,999) fell from 49 percent to 35 percent, while the share at the very top ($100,000 or more) grew from 3 percent to 8 percent (Table 2).
