CNN Explains The Reason For The WH Pay Gap, And It’s Not Sexism

Article here. Excerpt:

'CNN reported on the White House pay gap as though men and women working the same jobs are paid differently, but the fourth paragraph of their report tells a different story.

In its Monday article titled, “White House pays women 80 cents for every dollar paid to men,” CNN wrote that “women working in the White House earn an average salary of 80 cents for every dollar paid to their male colleagues,” adding those numbers reflect a “gender pay gap wider than the national average of 82 cents on the dollar.”
...
The news outlet buries the real news in its fourth paragraph, which states that the pay gap “is primarily due to more women filling lower-ranking jobs. Half the men working at the White House make $95,000 or more annually, while half the women $70,500 or less.”

Therefore women are not making 80 cents for ever dollar paid to their male counterparts because this statement implies that women are being paid less than men for doing equal work when they are in fact doing different jobs that demand different salaries.'

What Pay Gap Crusaders REALLY want...

... is to see women get paid more than market rate for the jobs they are doing while men still get paid market rate.

They want women in essence to be paid a FT wage for a PT job. If a man is FT as a, say, computer programmer, and gets $80k/yr for it, and part of his job includes adding new features to applications, and a woman with the same title (eg: Software Engineer) works PT 20 hrs/week for $40k/yr. and her duties are mostly bug fixes, feminists/wage gap crusaders want to see her paid the same $80k/yr. as her FT male coworker. If however another PT engineer she works with is male and he gets paid $40k/yr., they want him to stay at that rate.

That is all that is happening here. "Female exceptionalism", another head on the Nymphotropic Hydra.
