Hoyer: White House Should Pay Women Equally To Men
How big of a hypocrite does this make Obama?
Check it out:
Minutes after President Obama ripped America’s gender “wage gap” during the State of the Union of Address, House Minority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) told Breitbart News “of course” he thinks the White House should pay its female staffers equally to any equal work done by male White House personnel.
“Well, of course,” Hoyer responded when asked by Breitbart News.
However, according to the D.C. based think tank the American Enterprise Institute, female White House staffers are paid less than 87 cents for every dollar paid to male staffers at the White House. This is a gender wage gap of more than 13 percent. AEI says.
A Washington Times analysis of White House pay records from 2011 showed that while a few top women in the administration are paid top salaries, the majority of female staffers are paid less than their male counterparts, earning a median salary of $60,000, around 18 percent less than men, whose median salary is $71,000.
