Obama: Equal Pay for Women… Just Not on His Dime
July 15, 2008
..As CNSNews.com notes in their analysis, “On average, women working in Obama’s Senate office were paid at least $6,000 below the average man working for the Illinois senator.” CNSNews.com also points out that “of the five people in Obama’s Senate office who were paid $100,000 or more on an annual basis, only one — Obama’s administrative manager — was a woman.”
In contrast, women outnumbered men on McCain’s Senate payroll by 30 to 16. The women were paid an average of $3,000 more than the men.
Obama sounds less and less like an advocate of hope and change, and more and more like a typical politician. In his speech Obama said, “We can’t afford an economy where folks keep working harder for less. We can’t let the women in our workforce get paid even less for doing the same work.” Oh really? It appears that Obama, as an employer, has no problems doing exactly what he is speaking against. I guess he means “other” employers. Certainly we shouldn’t look at what his own hiring practices really are, right? This is just one other part of his record that he’d prefer be kept out of the spotlight.
Near the end of his speech, Obama said, “I want my daughters to grow up in an America where they have opportunities that are even greater than their mother had, or their grandmothers, or their great grandmothers — an America where our daughters truly have the same opportunities as our sons.”
Note to Obama’s daughters…. Don’t go to work for your dad.
