War On Women: Pelosi Pays Her Female Staffers 27% Less Than Her Male Staff Members…
Weasel Zippers ^ | 6/2/12 | zip

Which is more than the 23% difference Dems frequently cite.

Via Andrew Stiles:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) refused to answer questions about Senate Democrats paying their female staff members less than male staffers on Thursday. She may have ducked the question because a Washington Free Beacon analysis shows she pays the women on her staff $26,606 less per year on average.

According to publicly available salary data at the website Legistorm, Pelosi’s female employees earned an average annual salary of $96,394 in fiscal year 2011. Male employees earned $123,000 on average, a difference of 27.6 percent.

The gap is even larger if calculated using the median salaries for men and women. For Pelosi’s female employees, the median annual salary was $93,320 in 2011, compared to $130,455 for male employees — a difference of $37,135, or 40 percent.

That’s downright comical! I’m glad to hear that her fellow bitches are getting the shaft. Should make for some interesting water cooler conversations!

Considering we’re paying all their salaries, they better rectify the situation by paying the males less, not the women more.

...she (Nanzi Pelozi) pays the women on her staff $26,606 less per year on average.

Whew! I could live real nicely on what she shorts her women employees. I guess the real reason "Stingy" Pelozi hires a lot of women is to keep costs down!

I'd like to see clarification or corroboration of the numbers. Congressional staff is better paid than it used to be, but it's hard to believe Pelosi's staff average is in the six figures. Perhaps this is just "leadership" staff or "senior" staff, however defined.

No word from Alred and the N.O.W. nags.

Sadly the number are probably accurate. From this story (two years old!): Federal Workers earning double their private counterparts

"Federal civil servants earned average pay and benefits of $123,049 in 2009 while private workers made $61,051 in total compensation, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The data are the latest available." ederal civil servants earned average pay and benefits of $123,049 in 2009 while private workers made $61,051 in total compensation, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The data are the latest available.

The first thing that jumped out to me is Nancy does not pay anything. She is a parasitic predator that has managed to obtain high office despite being dishonest, decietful and flat out evil.

It’s easy to give good advice to others but hard to follow it yourself. Right, Nancy?

I spent a week in Wash DC / NoVa in April on vacation.

Because the area is so prosperous due to the massive expansion of the FedGov, prices for everything are outrageous.

My cousin lives in an 800,000 house that would be 80,000 here in Indiana.

It's truly a fairy tale land.

They probably averaged in $30K female secretaries and administrative assistants, just to make a point.

We just moved from the WDC area (thank God). You are so right. The WDC area is a distortion caused by the highly-inflated pay of the government workers and by the high number of well-paid government retirees. Your tax money “at work”. Similarly, there is an excess of various people on the dole who are there because of the various wqell-funded “programs” funded by the liberal taxpaters. It is one big cluster-f*** funded by your taxes.

If the average American saw the excessive and plush government offices, realized just how much these people are paid and so forth, there would be a run on tar and feathers.
