Biden runs around on the stump saying he supports equal pay, meanwhile it’s being reported that his female Senate staffers averaged 67% of men’s pay for almost 4 decades.
FreeBeacon- A Free Beacon analysis of spending reports covering Biden’s full Senate tenure found that he never achieved gender pay equity. Over the course of Biden’s time in the Senate, women on average earned just 67 cents for each dollar earned by men.
(Biden) bragged on Twitter, “Vice President Biden has fought for women’s rights his whole career: ✓Wrote the Violence Against Women Act ✓Co-sponsored the Equal Rights Amendment 9 times ✓Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act: 1st Obama-Biden bill signed into law ✓Co-sponsored the Pregnancy Discrimination Act.”
In 2012, Biden castigated Paul Ryan, then the GOP candidate for vice-president, saying, “Ryan voted against the Lilly Ledbetter act, which all it said, all Lilly Ledbetter said, was if a woman finds out she’s been treated wrongly, cheated in terms of her salary and benefits at work, then she’s able to sue from the moment she finds out.”
Biden should have been sued.
