Pay Gap Alert: Clinton Foundation Male Execs Earn 38% More Than Women

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.

The numbers were in stark contrast to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s campaign-oriented “Equal Pay Day” speech, which she delivered in Silicon Valley Tuesday. She charged that equal pay for women was “long overdue.”

The foundation’s highest paid executive is Frederick Post, director of “sponsor and marketing,” who has built the foundation’s assets to $247 million. He received $484,000 in annual compensation. The highest paid woman is CEO Virginia Ehrlich. Her pay is only $201,000, less than half that of Post’s. The second-highest paid male is long-time Clinton associate Bruce Lindsay, who received $395,000 in annual compensation.

All eight male foundation execs earn $200,000 or more. Only one woman earned $200,000, while Stephanie Streett, its executive director, received a paltry $169,000.

Take this source with a grain of salt, but dismissing it out-right when it cites the IRS document is ridiculous:

3. My dear Pants, that can has long been opened.

 

The concern over staggering income disparity is one of the driving forces of the primaries.

6. Not surprised by that statistic: institutional racism is reflected in income gaps

 

and the DC is a mostly Caucasian congress surrounded by a city of many colors.

5. I was going to say this sounds exactly like the GOP crap about the White House

which ignores the point about equal pay for equal work. It doesn't mean all women, regardless of position within the organization, should earn the same as any man at any level, like the president.

But then I see it's the Daily Caller, so of course it sounds exactly like that tired right-wing deception. That's exactly what it is.

Do you also share the GOP's opposition to Clinton's proposal that employees have a right to know what employers pay everyone so that they can actually wage a lawsuit for discrimination? Silly question. Of course you do. It's Clinton's position and by definition bad, whereas the Daily Caller is an esteemed source. Clinton is unacceptable, but you turn to the furthest right wing publication in order to promote GOP opposition to women's rights. It sure as hell isn't for Bernie sake, unless of course you believe Bernie and the Daily Caller share the same views.

Long after Bernie's campaign is over, you will still be the person who turned to the right's case against women's right to equal pay for equal work. I hope you're proud.

10. Wow. You and the GOP just so happen to agree exactly

on what defines sexism. Yeah, standing up for equal pay for equal work is sexist. Opposing equal pay is all about promoting human equality--Daily Caller, GOP style.'

Was the Civil Rights Act defending racism and Jim Crow promoting racial equality?


Given this new found commitment to women's rights, I have no doubt you will be sacrificing half of your salary to a woman nearby earning minimum wage. Otherwise that would be "defending sexism."

Your games aren't remotely convincing.

Go on, talk some more about all the "privilege" working-class blacks have while defending the superiority of super rich Sanders supporters, too important to face criticism from lowly citizens.

11. The Clinton foundation discriminates against women when hiring?

Else they would have those top paid jobs at at least 50/50.

12. The sexism of the executive board doesn't matter apparently...

 

...just those that make 25% of their salaries.

13. IKR?

We're getting so much honesty from them lately! Sexism? Meh when it's my team. Racism? That's not racism, that's my team! Corruption? That's not corruption, that's feathering your nest!
