It’s no secret that Elizabeth Warren is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. She plays “social justice warrior” and wants everyone to believe she if fighting for the greater good.

Low and behold, we find out that Warren actually pays her female employees less than their male counterparts.

Free Beacon Reports:

This year, Warren was the only female Democratic senator who ignored Equal Pay Day entirely, and it was not due to a lack of opportunity.

She delivered a nearly 10 minute speech Tuesday afternoon and made no mention of equal pay. The topic of speeches during the session was the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch, but that didn’t stop fellow Democratic Senators Mazie Hirono (Hawaii), Tammy Duckworth (Ill.), or Kamala Harris (Calif.) from acknowledging Equal Pay Day.

Warren didn’t even bother to send out a tweet recognizing Equal Pay Day—setting her apart from the other 15 Democratic women in the Senate.

How’s that for “social justice”? Looks like Warren, just like every liberal, is just in it for herself. She is only paying the women 71 cents per every $1 the men are making.


Where are the feminists now? Why  aren’t they rioting outside of her office with signs and pink hats?

The gender pay gap in Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s office is nearly 10 percent wider than the national average, meaning women in the Massachusetts Democrat’s office will have to wait longer than most women across the country to recognize Equal Pay Day.

Equal Pay Day, created two decades ago by the National Committee on Pay Equity, is scheduled by using the Census Bureau annual unadjusted gender pay gap to determine how far into the next year women would have to work to match annual earnings of men. Last year’s figures, showing that women earned 79.6 percent of what men earned, put Equal Pay Day on Tuesday April 4, more than three months into the calendar year.
