Then why aren't they following it themselves???

"The pay differential is quite striking in some cases, especially among leading Democrats. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), who runs the Senate Democratic messaging operation, paid men $19,454 more on average, a 36 percent difference.

Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) paid men $13,063 more, a difference of 23 percent.

Other notable Senators whose “gender pay gap” was larger than 23 percent:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.)—47.6 percent
Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D., N.M.)—40 percent
Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.)—34.2 percent
Sen. Ben Cardin (D., Md.)—31.5 percent
Sen. Tom Carper (D., Del.)—30.4 percent
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.)–29.7 percent
Sen. Kent Conrad (D., N.D.)–29.2 percent
Sen. Bill Nelson (D., Fla.)—26.5 percent
Sen. Ron Wyden (D., Ore)—26.4 percent
Sen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa)—23.2 percent"


"according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of the campaign’s public filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

The Obama reelection campaign’s female employees earned an average of $6,872 during that period, compared with an average of $7,235 for male employees. That is a difference of $363, or 5.3 percent.

The annualized pay difference is more than $2,100 per year."

What was the average experience level and workload for the individuals. Being that there are not hundreds of these employees, more like dozens. You've hardly made the case.

There's a pattern here.

Are you saying democrats don't like to put women in equal positions of responsibility as they do men?

More examples from the White House:

According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).


When will the Democrat war on women stop?

You know what makes me uneasy? No data about what jobs people are doing for their different pay. No information about Rs at all - only Ds. No. There aren't enough numbers to consider the inferences to be made from them to be honest or reliable. That's uneasy for sure.

No matter how much is posted about the democrats war on women, you'll hide your eyes.

You are a drone.

This is just anti dem partisan political campaign attacks. I guess the repubs are better? What a joke. No self respecting women would consider this post for a NY minute.

Oh poor you! Anti-dem attack.

Cleanup your own house before you start whining about others, donkey.

Name calling simply betrays the weakness of your arguments.

My house is fine. The dems will deal with their problems as they see fit. Women are smart enough to know which party stands with them.

Your post is useless. Irrelevant, meaningless. I just want it here in black n white, that you are simply another anti dem partisan who is not concerned for women but simply trying to attack dems.

Name calling? What name calling? Donkey = Democrat... aka YOU.

Maybe you should come up with some better lines. That's your standard answer for every post on occupywallst that you don't agree with.

TILT! Try again.
