Obama Proclaims Equal Pay Day (Pays Men More)

From CNS News:

Obama–Who Pays Men 13% More Than Women–Proclaims ‘Equal Pay Day’

By Fred Lucas | April 9, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama designated April 9 as National Equal Pay Day, even though 70 percent of White House staffers in the top-salary bracket were men, and male White House staffers earn on average 13 percent more than female staffers.

“To grow our middle class and spur progress in the years ahead, we need to address longstanding inequity that keeps women from earning a living equal to their efforts,” Obama said in the proclamation released Monday evening. “That is why I have made pay equity a top priority — from signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act days after I took office to cracking down on equal pay law violations wherever they occur. And to back our belief in equality with the weight of law, I continue to call on the Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act.”

CNSNews.com reported on March 15 that 70 percent of White House staffers earning the maximum salary of $172,200 last year were men and 30 percent were women, according to the White House numbers posted on staff compensation. Further, men on the White House staff are paid $86,260.89 on average. Women on the White House staff are paid an average of $76,162.65. So men on the White House staff are paid about 13.26 percent more than women. Put another way, women earn 88.29 percent of what men earn…

So when is Obama going to turn himself into the authorities?

This has been a pattern for Obama dating back to the days before he became president.

In 2008, CNSNews.com reported that then-Sen. Obama, on average, paid women on his Senate staff only 78 percent of what he paid men–with the average man on Obama’s Senate staff getting an annual salary of $57,425.00 and the average woman getting an annual salary or $44,953.21…

So he has a long history of such crimes against humanity.

The highest annual compensation for any White House staffers in 2012 was $172,200, and a total of 20 people earned that top salary. Among those 20 employees, 14 were men and 6 were women–making 70 percent of the highest-paid White House staffers men, and 30 percent women.

“I call upon all Americans to recognize the full value of women’s skills and their significant contributions to the labor force, acknowledge the injustice of wage inequality, and join efforts to achieve equal pay,” Obama said in the proclamation.

You first!

    I am shocked the White House backed Jay-Z’s and Beyonce’s vacation to Cuba where the communists always put on a show if an American visits.

    I’m beginning to think the White House was behind Dennis Rodman visiting North Korea.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a problem of unequal pay for women in my entire life.

    As far as in the White House it’s a joke.

    Should a women that does Michelle’s hair and fashion and sets up celebrity appointment get paid the same as Obama’s Meditation mentor who e-mails him a proverb everyday?

    Should not the male cook who not only makes meals, works the garden, runs the WH brewery, and services on the fight obesity in children not get paid more than the woman that answers the phone?

    I do not believe there is an unequal in pay problem between males and females.
