Why Does Obama's White House Pay Women Less?

10/18/2012

According to a report published by the Washington Free Beacon in April, the 2011 annual report on White House staffers revealed that the median annual salary for female White House employees was 18% less than male employees —$60,000 compared with $71,000.

Book: Women in Obama White House felt excluded and ignored

By Nia-Malika Henderson
Peter Wallsten,

A new book claims that the Obama White House is a boys’ club marred by rampant infighting that has hindered the administration’s economic policy and left top female advisers feeling excluded from key conversations.

“Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President,” by journalist Ron Suskind due out next Tuesday, details the rivalries among Obama’s top economic advisers, Larry Summers, former chairman of the National Economic Council, and Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner. It describes constant second-guessing by Summers, now at Harvard, who was seen by others as “imperious and heavy-handed” in his decision-making.

In an excerpt obtained by The Post, a female senior aide to President Obama called the White House a hostile environment for women.

“This place would be in court for a hostile workplace,” former White House communications director Anita Dunn is quoted as saying.“Because it actually fit all of the classic legal requirements for a genuinely hostile workplace to women.”

LIAR!!! Ha Ha Ha HA!!!








Obama's War on Women


Women occupied many of the West Wing’s senior positions, but felt outgunned and outmaneuvered by male colleagues such as former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Summers.

“I felt like a piece of meat,” Christina Romer, former head of the Council of Economic Advisers, said of one meeting in which Suskind writes she was “boxed out” by Summers.

Dunn told Suskind that the problems began during the 2008 campaign. At one point she was viewing a television ad with other campaign officials and was shocked to see no women in the spot.

“There isn’t a single woman in this ad,” Dunn said.“I was dumbfounded. It wasn’t like they were being deliberately sexist. It’s just there was no one offering a female perspective.”

The ad was later reshot, with women included.

“The president has a real woman problem,” an unnamed high-ranking female official told Suskind.“ The idea of the boys’ club being just Larry and Rahm isn’t really fair. He [Obama] was just as responsible himself.”

Based on interviews with more than 200 people inside and outside the White House, Suskind’s book comes as Obama faces the lowest poll numbers of his tenure, and deep discontent over his economic policies.

According to the book, female staffers, like Dunn and Romer, felt sidelined. In November 2009, female aides complained to the president about being left out of meetings, or ignored.

Dunn said in the interview that her husband, now-White House lawyer Bob Bauer, was “surprised to see me as someone who could be talked over in meetings.”

WHY ARE YOU SUCH A LYING BAG OF CRAPOLA?









Obama touts fair pay for women, despite records showing women paid less in his own White House [VIDEO]

At Tuesday’s Hofstra University presidential debate, President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney duked it out over pay equity for women, just as they have fought over female votes in the national polls.

While Obama made the empathetic case for his single mother and his belief in equal pay — pointing out that the first bill he signed as president was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act — he did not address reports this year that demonstrated that his own White House pays women less than men.

According to a report published by the Free Beacon in April, the 2011 annual report on White House staff revealed that the median annual salary for female White House employees was 18 percent less than male employees —$60,000 compared to $71,000.

And in 2008, Scripps Howard syndicated columnist Deroy Murdock noted that as in Obama’s U.S. Senate office, women were paid less than men: While the average male staffer brought home $54,397, female staffers averaged $45,152.

Romney detailed his professional history, recruiting women into positions of power during his tenure as governor of Massachusetts. He further pointed out the economic suffering women have endured under Obama, including the loss of 580,000 jobs among women and 3.5 million women in poverty.

“What we can do to help young women and women of all ages is to have a strong economy — so strong that employers that are looking to find good employees and bringing them into their workforce and adapting to a flexible work schedule that gives women opportunities that they would otherwise not be able to afford,” Romney said.

* Equal pay...check on the ladies of MSNBC on that subject.

* Where are the female Dem gov'nrs elected from NY, Ca, My, Ma and Il.? Total..ZERO , ZILCH , NADA and NONE.

While conservative states such as Az, La, Tx , S.C have had 7 female govrs total.Of course don't forget LEFTY's favorite enemy of 2008..Gov. Sarah Palin of Ak.
By Jan 2013 it may be ZERO Dem to 4 GOP female gov'nrs.

* Still pushing Sanger's genocide of the black population ?

* The Dems think all that matters to female voters is sex...oh well ...typical Dem . That's pretty degrading of them IMHO.

Dear, equal pay for equal work was federal law before Obama.

As for your wombs, dear, when Roe is overturned each state will set their own rules.

Shocking!

LEFTY doesn't understand research and hiring methods utilized in hiring qualified employees.

A binder is just a term for a specific data base paper organized as opposed to digitally organized but beyond LEFTY's comprehension level.

Romney gathered his data base/binder sets with impute from womens groups but LEFTY ignores that.

The Consequences of Obama's Illegal War


Professors Ackerman and Hathaway argue today that Obama's Libya will create an all new and dangerous precedent for the imperial presidency:

Once Obama crosses the Rubicon, future presidents will simply cite Libya when they unilaterally commit America to far more ambitious NATO campaigns.

Make no mistake: Obama is breaking new ground, moving decisively beyond his predecessors. George W. Bush gained congressional approval for his wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Bill Clinton acted unilaterally when he committed American forces to NATO’s bombing campaign in Kosovo, but he persuaded Congress to approve special funding for his initiative within 60 days. And the entire operation ended on its 78th day.

In contrast, Congress has not granted special funds for Libya since the bombing began, and the campaign is likely to continue beyond the 30-day limit set for termination of all operations....

If nothing happens, history will say that the War Powers Act was condemned to a quiet death by a president who had solemnly pledged, on the campaign trail, to put an end to indiscriminate warmaking.
