It’s really unfortunate for Elizabeth Warren that this staffer payroll report came out on ‘Equal Pay Day’

April 4, 2017 | Tom Tillison

It’s all in the timing…

An analysis by The Washington Free Beacon showed that women employed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren “were paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year.”

It didn’t help the progressive social justice warrior much that this damning data was shared on Equal Pay Day, a day set aside to celebrate the Equal Pay Act becoming law in the United States — President John F. Kennedy signed it into law on June 10, 1963.

The study shows that gender pay gap in the Democratic lawmaker’s office is “nearly 10 percent wider than the national average.”

An embarrassing showing, no doubt, and while Warren actually referenced a “day of embarrassment” at this time last year on Twitter, this year she is surprisingly quiet.

Social media users were not nearly as quiet, excoriating “Fauxcohntas” for her rank hypocrisy.

Here’s a sampling of results from Twitter:

These female Democrats in Congress are the biggest hypocrites.

Poco-haunt-us (spelling intentional) is setting her sights on the POTUS 2020. This will be fun

Nothing says BS like basing a story on an analysis by The Washington Free Beacon.

No, Elizabeth Warren Doesn’t Pay Women Less Than Men

The reports from conservative outlets are based on incomplete data.
By Laura Bassett

WASHINGTON― On Equal Pay Day on Tuesday, the Washington Free Beacon misleadingly accused Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) of paying women 30 percent less than men in her own office in 2016. That certainly would be hypocritical of her, as she regularly decries the gender pay gap in America.

But a look at the full salary data for Warren’s office reveals that she has actually paid women slightly more than men during her three years in the Senate. The median salary for Warren’s female employees since she was elected in 2012 is $44,108, according to publicly available pay data compiled by her office and reviewed by The Huffington Post. The median salary for men over the same time period was $43,348. This paints quite a different picture from the Free Beacon story, which was gleefully picked up by other conservative outlets, including Fox News, Breitbart and the Daily Caller.

The Free Beacon claimed women earned 71 cents for every dollar men earned in Warren’s office, based on incomplete salary data from fiscal year 2016. This would be significantly worse than the pay gap in the United States, where women working full-time earn an average of 80 cents on the dollar compared to men. But the analysis only included people who had been employed by Warren’s office the entire year, which excluded, among others, Warren’s all-time highest paid staffer, Mindy Myers. Myers was earning $170,000 a year as Warren’s chief of staff in the first quarter of fiscal year 2016. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee hired her as its first female executive director in December.

The Free Beacon also claimed Warren is only paying one woman more than $100,000, compared to five men. This leaves out Haaren Hinck, who worked for Warren for half of last year earning $118,000. And Lauren Miller, Warren’s digital director, earns half of her roughly $120,000 salary from Warren’s senate office and half from the campaign ― but the Free Beacon did not include the latter half in its analysis.

That said, because some of Warren’s top-paid female staffers were promoted to other places in 2016 and replaced by men, that year was not the best her office has performed in terms of comparative median pay. Warren’s state strategic advisor, Tracey Lewis, left in 2015 to work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. But even considering those staff changes, the overall pay for the office favors women, and Warren has always paid women as much as men with the same job titles.

A Warren aide said that the senator takes pay equity seriously and that her record speaks for itself.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story referred to the mean salaries for men and women in Warren’s office. In fact, the data was about the median salaries.

All that proves is that two women were the only ones earning high incomes, that when included, made the average look better. One would earn a million in one year, had she been hired that long....

I have to wonder if you throw out those in both genders over say $150K, how the averages would look. My bet is she in fact underpays women relative to men.

Wait, you are saying there are REASONS other than inequality for the pay gap? And that numbers can be SKEWED when you don't take these REASONS into consideration?

Imagine that.
