Study reveals Dem campaigns pay minorities substantially less than whites


Despite its assertion that it best serves minority interests, the Democratic Party pays its black and Hispanic federal campaign staffers substantially less than its white workers, according to a recent New Organizing Institute report.

“African American staffers on Democratic federal-level campaigns are paid 70 cents on the dollar compared to their white counterparts; Hispanics are paid 68 cents on the dollar,” institute Executive Director Ethan Roeder said on the organization’s blog.

The New Organizing Institute, which “train[s] organizers to build and manage effective movements,” according to its website, also found a disparity in Republican campaigns, as shown in the table below — but not nearly to the extent of that found among Democratic campaign workers. The table also reveals that Republicans typically pay their minority staffers substantially more than Democrats pay their white employees.


When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., accused Republicans of waging a “war on women” last year, the Washington Free Beacon reported that she paid her female staff an average of $26,606 less annually than her male employees — a 27.6 percent pay gap.

Meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee, chaired by U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, paid its female staffers an average if 15 percent less than its male equivalents, HotAir reported last year, finding a similar disparity among staffers working for the White House and a dozen Democratic U.S. senators.

If there’s a war on women and an attempt to keep minorities down, it seems to be waged by the Democratic Party, not the GOP.
