    Obama White House pays women less than men, records show


    BY: Andrew Stiles

    [excerpt]
    Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

    According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

    Calculating the median salary for each gender required some assumptions to be made based on the employee names. When unclear, every effort was taken to determine the appropriate gender.

    The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits.

    President Obama has frequently criticized the gender pay gap, such as the one that exists in White House.

    “Paycheck discrimination hurts families who lose out on badly needed income,” he said in a July 2010 statement. “And with so many families depending on women’s wages, it hurts the American economy as a whole.”

    From the article linked in the OP:
    Do you know how this median amount was obtained? You take every employee, without regard to their professional role, based purely on gender, and find the center point between the highest and lowest paid employees.

    It's total rubbish. You can't compare the salaries of secretaries and executive directors and conclude gender bias.

    You can only do a true comparison by looking at the position and educational background of employees, and comparing like to like.

    Jesus Christ, is there any limit to the nearly endless stupidity on this board?

    This is precisely the problem with the meaningless Bureau of Labor Statistics number that women earn $.77 for every dollar that men earn.

    Bet men and women who do the same job get the same pay.

    Did you check that?

    Trying to deny, deflect or distance yourself from the truth is typical of your ideology. Why don't you comment on the facts presented to you? Oblamer claims that Romney is against women, when on the other hand Oblamer himself pays women less than their male counterparts within his own administration while touting Lilly Ledbetter. Hmm..???
