I just read an article by reporter Sean Lengell which says:
women staffers in the House make 91 cents for every dollar male staffers make;
women staffers in the Senate make 88 cents for every dollar male staffers make.
It is important that woman staffers – both Republican and Democrat – band together and demand parity since in many ways they set the agenda for women across the country. If women in positions of power won’t demand parity — what chance do women who are not in positions of power have?
Plus…you know if the woman spoke up about a pay disparity, their bosses, politicians, could not take the heat and would remedy this discrepancy pronto.
Banding together is powerful — there is strength in numbers.
