Equal Pay Day Hypocrisy

By all appearances, even Elizabeth Warren privately thinks the “wage gap” is bogus.

Unbeknownst to many hard-working women, today, April 4, is this year’s Equal Pay Day. It’s a decades-old fad conjured up by the Left to hype the bogus “gender wage gap” narrative. By all appearances, even Sen. Elizabeth Warren privately thinks it’s bogus. The Washington Free Beacon reports:

> The gender pay gap in Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D., Mass.) [office] is nearly 10 percent wider than the national average, meaning women in the Massachusetts Democrat’s office will have to wait longer than most women across the country to recognize Equal Pay Day. Equal Pay Day, created two decades ago by the National Committee on Pay Equity, is scheduled by using the Census Bureau annual unadjusted gender pay gap to determine how far into the next year women would have to work to match annual earnings of men. Last year’s figures, showing that women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year. However, women working for Warren were paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.

The irony, of courses, is that Sen. Warren regularly screeches about the supposed male-female wage disparity. Last year in a Senate speech, she declared, “Today is Equal Pay Day, and by the sound of it, you would think it’s some sort of historic holiday commemorating the anniversary of a landmark day that our country guaranteed equal pay for women. But that’s not what this is about. Not even close.” And on Twitter, she added, “#EqualPayDay isn’t a national day of celebration. It’s a national day of embarrassment.” She got at least one part right. It is a national day of embarrassment — because of demagogues like Sen. Warren, who inwardly realize but chose not to discuss the reality surrounding the “wage gap.” Besides, such discrimination was outlawed in 1963. Where’s the recognition for that achievement? Warren pretends it doesn’t exist.
