Elizabeth Warren has a women problem.
As in, she doesn’t pay them as much as men.
The facts are not kind to Warren, the social justice warrior, champion of women.
According to Free Beacon:
However, women working for Warren were paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis.
The median annual earnings for women staffers, $52,750, was more than $20,000 less than the median annual earnings for men, $73,750, according to the analysis of publicly available Senate data.
When calculated using average salaries rather than median, the pay gap expands to just over $26,051, or about 31 percent.
But-but, we care about women! Or maybe not so much…
Among employees employed the entire year, only one woman, Warren’s director of scheduling, earned a six-figure salary, at $100,624.88.
Five men—Warren’s director of oversight and investigations ($156,000), legislative director ($149,458), deputy chief of staff ($119,375), Massachusetts state director ($152,310), and deputy state director ($113,750)—earned more than Warren’s highest paid woman staffer in 2016.
Warren was not quiet last year on Equal Pay Day about the horrors of American society.
Warren said on last year’s Equal Pay Day that the American workplace was “rigged against women” and called it a “national day of embarrassment” for the nation.
“Today is Equal Pay Day, and by the sound of it, you would think it’s some sort of historic holiday commemorating the anniversary of a landmark day that our country guaranteed equal pay for women,” Warren said. “But that’s not what this is about. Not even close.”
#EqualPayDay isn’t a national day of celebration. It’s a national day of embarrassment.

But yesterday, Equal Pay Day 2017, after the story broke about Warren’s treatment of the women in her office, Warren was strangely silent.
For the first time in several years, she failed to talk about Equal Pay Day on the Senate floor.
While she spoke about Neil Gorsuch and other topics, she was strangely silent on the significance of the day, while other liberals pointed it out.
