Obama Rails Against ‘Unequal Pay’ As WH Has Larger Gender Pay Gap Than Rest of D.C.

Obama can rant and rave about how the GOP hate women and want to go back to the 50′s when women could be put in their place, barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. They hate women so much that they think women deserve a smaller paycheck compared to their male counterparts working the same job.

But what Obama won’t address is the White House’s own pay disparities between men and women employees. ABC News reported:

The latest U.S. Census statistics show that, on average, full-time working women earn 77 cents to every dollar earned by men nationwide — a gap that has held fairly steady during Obama’s presidency.

By other measures, such as comparing men and women in a single type of job or accounting for factors like education and family status, the pay gap is much smaller.

While “secrecy” has been a factor in some pay discrimination, experts say the biggest culprit behind the 77-cent figure is a broader social disparity between women and men in the roles they assume — types of occupations they pursue and income levels they achieve in certain professional fields.
