Yesterday, on “Equal Pay Day” Hillary Clinton was in Silicon Valley in California extolling the virtues of companies like Gap and Salesforce for closing the gender pay gap.
Yahoo reports, Clinton spoke at a round table discussion hosted by salary data site Glassdoor.com. She gave a nod to Salesforce (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff, who spent $3 million last year to close the gender wage gap at his company, and Gap (GPS), the first Fortune 500 company to announce that it pays female and male employees equally in 2014.
“I’m very focused on making sure we don’t lose the impetus behind this conversation and that we get more companies … to be public [about their gender wage gap],” Clinton said.
“If CEOs and board members will actually ask themselves ‘How sure are we that we are paying people the same?’ the data shows even in the best-intentioned companies that is often not happening,” she said.
Oh, how right she is! Why, let’s just take that “best-intentioned” company, the Clinton Foundation and see what the data shows.
According to the Daily Caller, Male executives at the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation earn 38 percent more than women executives, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation review of the foundation’s latest IRS tax filings.
The foundation’s 2013 IRS form 990 reveals that nearly three times as many men as women occupy the executive suites at the Little Rock, Arkansas-based foundation.
On average, top male executives at the foundation earn $109,000 more than the top female executives with positions in the C-suite.
“It is way past time to end the outrage of so many women still earning less than men on the job,” Clinton said.
No Mrs. Clinton, it’s way past time to end the outrageous hypocrisy from liberals like you.
