One of Hillary Clinton’s major platforms is to close the gender pay gap. According to her, women make less than men and it’s a misogynist hate crime. I’ve always felt like this issue was nonsense and that there was no evidence that men make more money, but as it turns out there is some truth to it. The Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s family charity, pays women less than men.
LifeZette has the 411 on how truly hypocrite Hillary Clinton is:
The Clinton Foundation in 2011 employed more women than men but paid them less, on average, according to a salary schedule included in an email released Friday by WikiLeaks.
A foundation employee emailed the payroll schedule to board Chairman Bruce Lindsey and John Podesta, who currently chairs Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. It included then-Chief Operating Office and Chief of Staff Laura Graham’s salary recommendations for 2012 for rank-and-file employees.
Get ready for it:
Overall, the average salary for women and men was close. But men out-earned women. Men earned $ 68,164 compared to $ 64,118 for women, on average. The median salary also was higher for men, $ 55,200 compared with $ 50,000.
And it gets worse:
The spreadsheet included 62 employees, 37 women and 25 men. It did not include people who received money from the foundation as contractors. The top-paid employee on the list was senior adviser Justin Cooper, who was pulling in $ 127,000. The lowest-paid employee was a female assistant making $ 18,000.
This is from the person who likes to say, “Last time I checked, there’s no discount for being a woman.”
I guess she never checked her own family foundation because there apparently is a discount for being a woman if they work for Hillary. This isn’t actually shocking news. Women on her staff when she was a Senator were also paid less than men, and the same was true for her 2008 presidential campaign.
I’m sensing a pattern here. Hillary says she wants to get big money out of politics but her campaign has raised and spent more special interest money than any candidate in history. She accuses her opponent of being abusive to women and yet she is married to a prolific rapist and sexual assaulter. She claims Trump can’t be trusted with America’s secrets but she has been criminally careless with classified material.
Hillary Clinton is a shameless hypocrite. She often says that “words matter,” which she obviously doesn’t believe, but actions also matter. If she really wants to close the gender pay gap, she should at least take care of it in her own dealings before attacking the rest of the country.
