Obama's Gender Pay Gap is Myth. It's Just Not True, Experts Say
By: Michael Kersmarki
Experts say that the gender pay gap touted at Tuesday night's debate by President Obama is simply not true, and that even his own White House staff pays men more than women if the same erroneous statistical manipulation is used.
Journalist Bernard Goldberg has been one of many to discredit this widely held myth.
"I dont know about you but Im getting tired of pundits and activists almost always on the left who dont know what theyre talking about, spouting off in the media about how women dont make as much as men for doing the same work," Goldberg said.
Why do men generally earn more than women? It's because men often do different kinds of work than women, asserts James Sherk at the Heritage Foundation.
