Report shows women underpaid at DNC

Looking for the ‘war on women?’ Look no further than the Democratic National Committee! As reported this morning by Andrew Stiles at the Washington Free Beacon, the DNC pays women less than they do men — significantly less. According to the Free Beacon:

A review of salary data filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) revealed that the DNC paid female staff members $501 less on average than male staffers in July 2012, a difference of 15 percent.

The DNC’s 119 female employees earned $3,342 on average in the month of July, compared to $3,843 for its 113 male employees. On an annualized basis, the average female DNC employee would earn roughly $6,000 less than her male coworkers.

But before you send a nasty letter off to DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, you should be aware that this is a problem common to all Democrats in and around government:

The results are consistent with those of other Free Beacon reviews of salary data for the White House, Democratic members of Congress, and President Obama’s re-election campaign.

In 2011, female White House employees made about 18 percent less than their male counterparts, the Free Beacon found.

More than a dozen Democratic Senators paid their female staff members at least 20 percent less than male staffers during that same period.

The Obama campaign’s recent filings with the FEC revealed that it paid women more than 5 percent less than men during the months of May and June.
