Liz Warren lectures America about 'equal pay' — but maintains huge gender wage gap in Senate office

Being a very progressive woman in Congress, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) routinely speaks out about the gender wage gap that Democrats and feminists allege exists in the American marketplace.

Typically, Warren and feminists will argue that women make considerably less than men in the workplace. They advocate for "equal pay." However, it appears Warren has a difficult time practicing what she preaches.

On Thursday, Warren spoke to a group of liberal activists with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and renewed her calls for equal pay.

"Boy, do they keep reminding me about this on Capitol Hill the need to say this," she said, according to the Washington Free Beacon. "We believe in equal pay for equal work."

However, according to a report from the Free Beacon, Warren's gender pay gap in her office is so large that it is 10 percent larger than the national average.

The Free Beacon reported in April — the same month as "Equal Pay Day" — that women in Warren's office earn on average just 71 percent for each dollar the men earn. That equates to more than $20,000 less for women then men per year.

The calculations were for fiscal year 2016. Only one woman that year made six figures, while five men made $100,000 or more.

Liberals like Warren typically claim that women are paid less than men for the same work. However, studies prove time and time again that the "gap" exists because men are typically much more dedicated to their careers and make different choices in life and in the workplace. Those are the factors that lead to higher salaries for men — not gender.
