Hypocrite Of The Day

Maria Shriver (maybe vying for that veep spot while pushing that simple war-on-women recitation?) is pointing her finger at everyone except her friends, her party, her president…
But now what are we to think about the fact that women working in Obama’s own White House are paid only 87 cents for every dollar paid to men working for Obama? The chart above illustrates the pay gap at the White House, based on salary data from the “2013 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff.” An analysis of White House payroll data reveals that the 229 female employees in the Obama White House are being paid a median annual salary of $65,000 this year, compared to a median annual salary of nearly $75,000 for the 233 male White House staffers. Only gender discrimination could explain that disparity, and therefore Obama must be a sexist.
Little did Shriver know when she presented her report to the President, and got his support to address the gender wage gap, that she was meeting with a sexist employer who pays his female staffers 13% less on average than he pays his male employees.
I’m not going to assume Shriver didn’t know something that was reported years ago.
She knows, and for certain employers, she doesn’t care.http://www.black-and-right.com/2014/01/24/hypocrite-of-the-day-46/
