Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has long portrayed herself as a quixotic leader for the equal pay for women. However, it appears that she does not hold herself to the standard she vociferously touts while out on the stump.
While she was in the Senate from 2002 to 2008, her female staffers made 28% less when juxtaposed to her male staffers. This is hypocrisy in its puritanical form, but even more astounding is the fact that she had vastly more female staff employed than that of men.
According to the data available to the public under the Freedom of Information Act, the facts show the antithesis of fairness to women. The Free Beacon discovered that the average salary for Clinton's female staff members made $15,708.38 less per year compared to men.
The average median income for men under the Clinton tenure was $$56,499.93 as compared to $40,791.55 for women. Rest assured the mainstream media will not report on this blatant hypocrisy – they are all in for Hillary.
Bill Clinton, yes, just hearing his name reminds folks of all the Machiavellian shenanigans with him and women. He was a one-man war on women. He used his power the seduce and take advantage of women throughout his entire political career.
Hillary claims this, “Women tend to work more part-time jobs, leave the workforce for child rearing more often, and favor jobs with higher flexibility but lower pay.”
She is correct, and that applies to every woman in America, not just Washington D.C. employees. The false narrative of the war on women is just that – a fallacy.
On April 8, 2014, Hillary Tweeted, “20 years ago, women made 72 cents on the dollar to men. Today it's still just 77 cents. More work to do. #EqualPay #NoCeilings”
It was just eight years ago when she paid her female staffers 72-cents on the dollar compared to men. This tweet was a splendiferous gift to Republicans and it will be a tool used against her whosoever the 2016 Conservative nominee is.
