Heh: White House Oppresses Women

You know that favorite bogus statistic of feminists that women are only paid 77 cents for every dollar a man is paid (bogus because once you correct for variables like age, occupation, and tenure in the workforce, the disparity disappears)?  Well never mind.  Turns out Obama’s White House is a major offender.  From Mark Perry’s Carpe Diem blog:

Mark adds:

I hereby call upon President Obama to promote gender equality by addressing a serious gender wage gap for women working on his staff at the White House. According to an analysis of salary data from the “2013 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff,” the 228 female employees in the Obama White House are being paid a median annual salary of $65,000, compared to a median annual salary of nearly $75,000 for the 231 male White House staffers (see chart above). In other words, females working in the Obama White House are paid less than 87 cents for every dollar paid to male staffers, and there is therefore a significant White House “gender pay gap” of more than 13%. 

Just as was the case with President Clinton and sexual harassment, expect the left to change the subject when you bring this up.  Prediction: when it turns out Obamacare treats men better than women, expect feminists to change the subject again.
