In the third presidential debate, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton said that, as president, she wants “to make sure that women get equal pay for the work we do.”
If only that were true for her own offices.
As The Daily Caller reported, there was an immense “pay gap” between men and women at the Clinton Foundation, according to 2013 IRS filings. Also, according to WikiLeaks emails released this week, only three of the highest-paid 11 executives at the Clinton Foundation were women, and there was a wage disparity of over $100,000 between the highest paid men and women at the Foundation.
All the more incriminating per liberal ideology, at the Clinton Foundation “median salary of the highest paid men is $346,106, while the median salary of the highest paid women is $185,386 ($190K difference).” That approaches a colossal 50 percent difference.
All of a sudden, the acclaimed 77 percent seems like a pipedream!
There was also a gender wage gap in Clinton’s Senate office and her State Department office. According to reports, “[f]rom 2002 to 2008, the median annual salary for Mrs. Clinton’s female staffers was $15,708.38 less than what was paid to men” in her Senate office. Overall, women were paid 72 cents on the dollar during the presidential nominee’s tenure in the Senate.
And as secretary of state, Clinton paid men, on average, $16,000 more annually, the Free Beacon reported last October (based on data from the Office of Personal Management).
Hillary wasn’t challenged on this point by Donald Trump, and her claim to support equal pay for equal work went uncontested.
But if she becomes president, will her female White House staffers be shortchanged on “equality” too?
