Leading From Behind Again – WH Females Earn Less than Males

Russ Steele

Obama makes a big deal about fairness, mouthing all the words, but when it come to action he come up short again and again. Here is yet again another example of his duplicity.

Details in the Washington Free Beacon:

Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.

According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).

Calculating the median salary for each gender required some assumptions to be made based on the employee names. When unclear, every effort was taken to determine the appropriate gender.

The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to  immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits.

President Obama has frequently criticized the gender pay gap, such as the one that exists in White House.

Did you hear about this is hostile work place in the Lame Stream Press or an AP Story. No, you heard about it form the alternative press, on line bloggers. Stay Tuned. There is more.
