The Planned Parenthood abortion company on social media today is trumpeting #EqualPayDay — a day to highlight how some companies reportedly pay women lower wages than men for the same jobs. However, the abortion giants’ two best friends, President Barack Obama and pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton, both paid women less.

As the Washington Free Beacon notes, Hillary Clinton paid women 28% less than men:

Hillary Clinton portrays herself as a champion of women in the workforce, but women working for her in the U.S. Senate were paid 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of her Senate years’ salary data.

During those years, the median annual salary for a woman working in Clinton’s office was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for a man, according to the analysis of data compiled from official Senate expenditure reports.

The analysis compiled the annual salaries paid to staffers for an entire fiscal year of work from the years 2002 to 2008. Salaries of employees who were not part of Clinton’s office for a full fiscal year were not included. Because the Senate fiscal year extends from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, Clinton’s first year in the Senate, which began on Jan. 3, 2001, was also not included in the analysis.

The salaries speak for themselves. The data shows that women in her office were paid 72 cents for every dollar paid to men.

Male Female comparison

Obama doesn’t do much better — paying women 15.8 percent less than men:

The Obama White House pays its female staffers 15.8 percent less on average than its male staffers, according to an analysis by the American Enterprise Institute.

AEI economics scholar Mark J. Perry looked at the salaries of all White House employees, which are publicly available, and averaged out those who were male and female.

Female staffers earned on average $65,650 a year to male staffers’ $78,000, Perry found.

“Therefore, female staffers in the Obama White House currently earn 84.2% of the median salary for male staffers, or 84.2 cents for every $1 men earn, and there is a 15.8% gender pay gap at the White House,” Perry wrote. “That pay gap is slightly smaller than the 17.9% gender pay gap at the White House last year, but is still almost two times the average gender pay gap for Washington, DC of 9.2% according to the most recent data from the Department of Labor.”
