This according to the Washington Free Beacon
According to publicly available salary data at the website Legistorm, Pelosi’s female employees earned an average annual salary of $96,394 in fiscal year 2011. Male employees earned $123,000 on average, a difference of 27.6 percent.
The gap is even larger if calculated using the median salaries for men and women. For Pelosi’s female employees, the median annual salary was $93,320 in 2011, compared to $130,455 for male employees—a difference of $37,135, or 40 percent.
Pelosi’s entire staff—men and women—earned an average annual salary of $108,150 and a median salary of $114,662. By both measures, women made considerably less.
Well, well, well, how about them apples? No, no, it doesn’t matter why the women are paid less. That is immaterial to the discussion. Democrat talking points about the War On Women clearly state that women should be paid exactly the same regardless of position, time in service, or other factors. Obviously, Nancy hates women and simply wants to see them barefoot in the kitchen.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday condemned companies that pay women less than men, but was unwilling to condemn Senate Democrats who pay their female staffers less than male staffers, saying that the Senate is “another world.”
Speaking in Washington, D.C., Pelosi reminded everyone that there shouldn’t be income disparity between men and women.
“It’s 2012. It’s 2012, everybody. What is it we’re talking about women getting paid less? Are you going home to your little girls each day and saying: ‘Work hard, study hard, be diligent so that when you grow up you can make less than your brother?”
She added, “There seems to be a decision somewhere in some companies and parts of our economy that that’s an okay thing to do.”
Funny how things never seem to be a problem when it’s Democrats doing it.
