Senate Dems worst offenders in gender pay gap

Senate Dems worst offenders in gender pay gap

Do women earn less than men, all things being equal? Yes. In some places, the gender pay gap is especially glaring.

Take the U.S. Senate as a for instance. Consider these wage disparities, courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon (h/t Raffi Williams):

  • Women earn on average $23,504 less than men in Sen. Mark Begich’s office.
  • Women earn on average $20,861 less than men in Sen. Mark Warner’s office.
  • Women earn on average $15,343 less than men in Sen. Kay Hagan’s office.
  • Women earn on average $13,037 less than men in Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office.
  • Women earn on average $9,783 less than men in Sen. Mark Udall’s office.
  • Women earn on average $6,267 less than men in Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s office.
  • Women earn on average $5,799 less than men in Sen. Mark Pryor’s office.
  • Women earn on average $3,189 less than men in Sen. Jeff Merkley’s office.

One commonality among the above-named Senators? All are Democrats.
