Clinton’s Research Director Tony Carrk And Robby Mook Were Advised Of The “Huge Discrepancies” Between Highest Paid Men And Women At The Clinton Foundation. “Guys – Given the story yesterday about pay equity at the State Department, I wanted to flag something that came out of our research on pay equity at the Foundation. There are huge discrepancies, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they went here next. See a summary below from Karuna.” (Ian Mandel, Email To Tony Carrk And Robby Mook, “Fwd: Equal Pay – Foundation,” John Podesta Wikileaks,2/24/15)

Analysis Of Clinton’s Senate Office Also Reveals A Gender Pay Gap

According To Analysis From The Washington Free Beacon, Clinton’s Senate Office Paid Women “72 Cents For Each Dollar Paid To Men.” “Hillary Clinton portrays herself as a champion of women in the workforce, but women working for her in the U.S. Senate were paid 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of her Senate years’ salary data.” (Brent Scher, “Hillary Clinton’s War on Women,” The Washington Free Beacon, 2/23/15)

“During Those Years, The Median Annual Salary For A Woman Working In Clinton’s Office Was $15,708.38 Less Than The Median Salary For A Man.” “During those years, the median annual salary for a woman working in Clinton’s office was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for a man, according to the analysis of data compiled from official Senate expenditure reports.” (Brent Scher, “Hillary Clinton’s War on Women,” The Washington Free Beacon, 2/23/15)

Politifact: The Washington Free Beacon’s Data “Supports” The Claim That Women Staffers Earned Less Money Than Men In Clinton’s Senate Office. “Hannity said Hillary Clinton paid ‘paid female staffers a lot less than the men’ than when she was a senator. One set of data supports that claim, but it is far from perfect.” (Katie Sanders, “Sean Hannity: As Senator, Hillary Clinton ‘Paid Female Staffers A Lot Less Than Men,’” Politifact, 5/21/15)

Clinton Has Called Gender Pay Gaps “Workplace Discrimination”

Clinton’s Campaign Website  Laments That Women Earn Less Than Men And Promises That Clinton Would Give Women The Tools They Need To “Fight Workplace Discrimination.” “Women earn less than men across our economy—and women of color often lose out the most. Hillary will promote pay transparency across the economy and work to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act—a bill she introduced as senator—to give women the tools they need to fight workplace discrimination.” (“Women’s Rights And Opportunity,” Hillary For America, 11/13/15)
