Revealing report renders Elizabeth Warren silent on Equal Pay Day


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) usually delivers a heartfelt speech on Equal Pay Day, which took place on Tuesday. This year, however, she was noticeably silent about the issue for the first time in her Senate career after The Washington Free Beacon reported on Tuesday that “women working in her Senate office earned just 71 percent of what was earned by men.”

As she had done every year since 2013, Warren  addressed Congress last year, calling Equal Pay Day a “national day of embarrassment” and spoke about how she would keep fighting to close the gender wage gap.

This year, she gave a short speech but said nothing about equal pay. Other female Democratic senators acknowledged Equal Pay Day, despite the fact that the topic at hand was the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Fifteen other Democratic women sent out tweets about Equal Pay Day, but Warren did not even do that.
