Bernie Sanders pays women staffers more than Elizabeth Warren does

January 16, 2020

  There has been a bit of a spat brewing between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren over the Vermont socialist’s alleged sexist remarks. Apparently when Elizabeth Warren was considering taking a run for President she talked to Bernie Sanders, who allegedly told her a woman could not win the Presidency. Why she did not bother to mention this until she was floundering in the polls is beyond me however Bernie Sanders is vehemently denying these accusations.

  So while all of this is going on how ironic is it that a new report is out which claims the so-called sexist male candidate pays his female staff members more than the woke female candidate? Here is more:

Congressional salary data analyzed by Breitbart News indicates the female employees in Sanders’ Senate office are paid more than those employed by Warren.

According to pay data compiled by Legistorm for the 2019 Fiscal Year—October 1, 2018 through September 31, 2019—the average salary for a full-time female employee working for Sanders was more than $68,000 annually. Female staffers working for Warren on average made only slightly over $63,500-per-year.

Breitbart News also determined the median salary for female employees in both offices to account for the disparity between senior aides and entry-level staffers. For example, the legislative directors of both senators made well over $100,000-per-year, while staff assistants, usually recent college graduates, only made a fraction of that figure.

The median salary for women in Warren’s office was $52,633, but with a less equitable distribution between the top and bottom. Only three female full-time employees made above six figures throughout the entire fiscal year, followed by two women who made between $75,000 and $85,000. The overwhelming majority, though, landed between $39,000 and $64,000-per-year.

Sanders’ office, in comparison, had a median female salary of $59,015, with only two out of 19 women making less than $45,000 annually.

  As I was laughing at the irony here I was struck by a second bit of irony. Whoever thought so many capitalists could make so much money working for a man who wants to usher in a new era of socialism for the rest of us?
