Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren pays her female staffers $20,000 less on average than her male staffers, according to a bombshell report in The Daily Caller.
Based on a study by the Washington Free Beacon, DC reporter Peter Hasson provides the shocking figures – male employees in Warren’s office scored a median annual salary of $73,750 in 2016, while female staffers brought home a median of $52,750 — a discrepancy of more than $20,000.
Females employed by Warren are paid just 71 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make. The top five highest-paid staffers in Warren’s office are all men, earning between $113,750 and $156,000 last year.
As Hasson points out, Warren often tweets on both her personal and Senate accounts about the injustices of women being paid less than men. “I cannot believe I have to give another speech fighting for equal pay for women,” she wrote recently.
