Is Obama A Sexist?

12 04 2012

According the the 2011 annual report, female employees earned 18% less than male employees. The median annual salary of female employees in the White house is $60,000, while male employees are paid a median salary of $71,000. (It is to be noted that these figures are based on the assumption on gender names.)

This all comes on the heels of the Obama campaign criticizing Romney for not endorsing Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, which makes it easier to file discrimination lawsuits.

This whole fiasco seems very ironic because Obama carried the unmarried women vote in 2008 by a large margin over John McCain. One would think that women who care so much about their future would look into these facts and realize the truth.

There has been a lot of talk about the female vote swaying the election, and this could definitely be a huge blow to his chances.

Like always, here are my sources:
