Elizabeth Warren wants to be the left-wing darling in the 2020 Presidential election.
She’s even positioned herself to the left of Karl Marx on every issue.
But she has one big problem that could tank her ambitions.
Liberals have made “Equal Pay” one of their top causes.
They claim there is wage gap between men and women.
And there is.
But the wage gap is in the offices of liberal politicians like Elizabeth Warren.
In Warren’s office, female staffers earn only 71 percent of what male staffers earn.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“However, 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.
Consistent with previous Free Beacon analyses of Senate salary data, only full-time staffers who were employed for the entire period in question were included in the calculations.
For example, Warren’s former chief of staff Mindy Myers and her male replacement Dan Geldon were not included because neither worked the full year.
Among employees employed the entire year, only one woman, Warren’s director of scheduling, earned a six-figure salary, at $100,624.88.
Five men—Warren’s director of oversight and investigations ($156,000), legislative director ($149,458), deputy chief of staff ($119,375), Massachusetts state director ($152,310), and deputy state director ($113,750)—earned more than Warren’s highest paid woman staffer in 2016.”
Warren previously claimed women are paid less than men because the economy is rigged.
The Huffington Post reports:
“Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is tired of commemorating Equal Pay Day, calling it “a national day of embarrassment” in a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday.
“Today is Equal Pay Day, and by the sound of it, you would think it’s some sort of historic holiday commemorating the anniversary of a landmark day that our country guaranteed equal pay for women,” she said. “But that’s not what this is about. Not even close…
…“The game is rigged against women and families, and it has to stop,” she said. “It is 2016, not 1916, and it’s long past time to eliminate gender discrimination in the workplace.”
But in reality, there is no wage gap.
It’s fake news.
The only place the wage gap is rigged against women is in Elizabeth Warren’s senate office.
