Kamala Harris, Who Pays Men More Than Women, Wants to Fine Those Who Pay Men More Than Women
Same old story. Same old hypocrisy.
Obama and other Democrats were caught doing the same thing. And that's because there are structural reasons for the pay gap.
Senator Kamala Harris had promised to campaign vigorously against sexual harassment before getting caught with sexual harassment in her own office that was being carried out by a close personal friend and aide.
Now she promised to end pay inequality by fining companies that pay men more than women. You'll never guess what obviously happened next.
The policy proposal from Harris mandates large companies to obtain an "equal pay certification" by showing they are paying men and women equally. Companies would be fined 1 percent of their daily profits for every 1 percent of a gender pay gap that exists, unless they could prove the gap could be explained by other factors, such as experience or performance.
The California senator and presidential contender has some explaining to do.
Analysis found men were paid a higher median salary than women both in Harris's Senate office and on her campaign.
In her Senate office's most recent six-month disclosure, covering the period from April 1, 2018, through Sept. 31, 2018, the median male salary disbursement was $34,999 and the median female salary disbursement was $32,999, leaving women with just 94 cents of every dollar paid to men.
The gender pay gap for the previous six-month period, during which the median male salary was $27,167 and the median female salary was $25,749.97, was a nearly identical 6 percent.
The pay gap was even greater during the first full month of Harris's presidential campaign in February—the median female salary disbursement for the month, $5,763.97, was about 87 percent of the median male salary disbursement, $6,632.23, a further analysis of her campaign filing found.
