A ‘Macaca’ Moment For Obama? By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY
Update 9/12/08: The National Review Online has an excellent article discussing the male/female pay disparity between McCain and Obama campaign staff.
How do they stack up?
“Based on these calculations, Obama’s 28 male staffers divided among themselves total payroll expenditures of $1,523,120. Thus, Obama’s average male employee earned $54,397. Obama’s 30 female employees split $1,354,580 among themselves, or $45,152, on average.
“McCain’s 17 male staffers split $916,914, thus averaging $53,936. His 25 female employees divided $1,396,958 and averaged $55,878…. One explanation could be that women compose a majority of McCain’s highest-paid aides. Among his top-five best-compensated staffers, three are women. Of his 20-highest-salaried employees, 13 are women.”
