Not only did Hillary Clinton pay her female Senate staffers less than male employees, but her family charitable foundation also regularly pays men more than women despite Clinton’s campaign to shatter the "glass ceiling," a new report shows.
The Weekly Standard reported
Thursday on its review of four years of tax returns from the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation that showed the highest-paid executives are men.
"In late February, Hillary Clinton, a self-proclaimed champion of women's rights and gender equity, came under fire for a Washington Free Beacon analysis
that showed women on Mrs. Clinton's staff during her tenure in the Senate were paid an average of 72 cents on the dollar compared to male staff," the conservative website reported, referring to her service as a U.S. senator from New York.
"Now, an analysis of the latest IRS filing for the foundation that bears her name … shows a similar compensation disparity between men and women employees. Although compensation figures are available for only a limited number of Foundation personnel, the 2013 Form 990 filed with the IRS
shows that out of eleven highly compensated individuals listed, the top eight are all men."
The 2013 filing showed the the top-paid executive at the Clinton Foundation is Frederick Poust, director of sponsors and marketing, made $484,257 a year. He was followed by Bruce Lindsey, a longtime adviser to former President Bill Clinton. Lindsey, the CEO and chairman of the board of directors, earned $394,856. The highest-paid female executive made $201,023.
Hillary Clinton, who is widely expected to declare her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination, has been on a highly publicized speaking tour where she has denounced the so-called "gender gap."
She criticized high-tech companies for paying women less than men when she spoke to a conference last month in Silicon Valley.
"You bump your heads on the glass ceilings that persist in the tech industry," she said
at the Watermark Silicon Valley Conference for Women.
"We can literally count on one hand the number of women who have actually been able to come here and turn their dreams into billion-dollar businesses. We’re going backward in a field that is supposed to be all about moving forward."
