Remember the Sen. Obama's campaign ad accusing Sen. McCain of not supporting equal pay for equal work for women? Well guess who has a disparity in salaries between male and females staffers in favor of males? You guess it --Sen. Obama....
"The most recent statistics are for the half-year from Oct. 1, 2007 to March 31, 2008, excluding interns and focusing on full-time personnel. For someone who worked only until, say, last Feb. 29, extrapolating up to six months' service simplifies this analysis. Doubling these half-year figures illustrates how a year's worth of Senate employees' paychecks should look.
Based on these calculations, Obama's 28 male staffers divided among themselves total payroll expenditures of $1,523,120. Thus, Obama's average male employee earned $54,397.
Obama's 30 female employees split $1,354,580 among themselves, or $45,152, on average." Source
Whoa, that means that Obama's female staffers earn .83 for every $1.00 male staffers earn!
How does Sen. McCain stack up?
"McCain's 17 male staffers split $916,914, thus averaging $53,936. His 25 female employees divided $1,396,958 and averaged $55,878.
On average, according to these data, women in John McCain's office make $1.04 for every dollar a man makes. In fact, all other things being equal, a typical female staffer could earn 21 cents more per dollar paid to her male counterpart -- while adding $10,726 to her annual income -- by leaving Barack Obama's office and going to work for John McCain."Source
So Sen. McCain female staffers earn $1.04 for every $1.00 male staffers earn.
But none of this really matters to Obama acolytes who can't be bothered with the facts as it interferes with their "high". In-frikin-credible!!!!
