Washington Post Reporters Discover Racial, Gender Pay Gap At Their Own Publication

Published

on

Several Washington Post reporters conducted a study at their own publication and discovered that there is evidence to suggest a possible gender and racial pay gap at the very newspaper they work for.

A contractual agreement made between the Washington Post Newspaper Guild and the Post allowed the union to put together a report that detailed how female reporters and editors as a group were paid less than male counterparts at the publication. The analysis was released on Wednesday. The study also uncovered that people of color were paid less than white men, even after taking factors like age and job description into consideration.

Here’s more from The Washington Free Beacon:

“The pay disparity between men and women is most pronounced among journalists under the age of 40,” the union said in a press release. “When adjusting for similar age groups, which in most cases is a good stand-in for years in journalism, it becomes clear that the pay disparity between men and women exists almost exclusively among employees under the age of 40.”

The report also found racial disparities in the paper’s performance evaluation results, which are a key metric for determining compensation.

“The Post tends to give merit raises based on performance evaluation scores, but those who score the highest are overwhelmingly white,” it continues. “But in 85 percent of instances in which a 4 or higher [out of 5] was awarded to a salaried newsroom employee, that employee was white…. On the flip side, 37 percent of scores below 3 were given to employees of color in the newsroom (the newsroom is about 24 percent nonwhite).”

The full report, compiled by a team of dozens of Post reporters and led by Pulitzer Prize-winner Steven Rich, also contained testimonials of pay discrimination in the workplace. One female reporter described how she learned that “the man who previously held her job, a reporter of the same age with more managerial experience but a fraction of her experience at the Post, was making $50,000 more than her.”

Another female employee said she learned that all of the male journalists on her particular reporting team were making more money than her, “even though she’s been at the Post longer than all of them and has been working in journalism longer than most of them. One of the men on her team is paid more than $30,000 more than her.”

The only real positive note from the report said that both men and women on the commercial side of the business are paid close to the same, however the median income for individuals of color was still five percent lower than for white employees.

Bill Barr Confirms This Was ‘First Time In History’ A ‘Presidential Campaign’ Was Spied On

People need to know the truth, once and for all…

It happened and it was egregious. There is no doubt about it, whatsoever. The 2016 Trump campaign was spied on. That much is 100% certain. And it is historic. Here’s what’s up, straight from the lips of Bill Barr – from Daily Wire: Attorney General William Barr slammed the FBI during an interview with NBC News on Tuesday, saying that the campaign was “clearly spied upon” and that it was the “first time in history” that something like that had ever happened to a presidential candidate. NBC News Pete Williams asked Barr, “Based on what you know so far, do you still stand by your statement that the campaign was spied upon?” Barr noted, “Oh, it was clearly spied upon. I mean, that’s what electronic surveillance is. I think wiring people up to go in and talk to people and make recordings of their conversations is spying. I think going through people’s emails which they did as a result of the FISA warrant. They went through everything, you know, from Page’s life.” WATCH: AG Bill Bar maintains the Trump campaign was very “clearly spied upon…” as a result of the sham FISA warrant, which Barr says was used to get emails, texts from the campaign. https://twitter.com/jasonrantz/status/1204531998485647361?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204531998485647361&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbarr-bombshell-trump-campaign-clearly-spied-upon-first-time-in-history-to-happen-to-presidential-campaign WATCH: AG Bill Barr on the Democrats: “they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool & maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of [the Trump admin]… they essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1195862925749043200?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1195862925749043200&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fobama-appears-to-rip-ocasio-cortez-in-warning-to-democrat-presidential-candidates It’s no wonder Democrats are so uninformed.

Barack Obama Was Better President Than George Washington, Says Most Democrat Voters

Holy moly! WOW!

903 adults were polled. 838 of those people were registered voters. At the end of the day, the majority of Democrat voters said something absolutely unconscionable. Why? Because Barack Obama is the greatest human being to ever walk the planet – obviously. You’d think even the most partisan Democrat voters would pick George Washington over Obama as America’s greatest president, but no. That’s how unbelievably how far left they’ve gone. They’re out of bounds. The line is a dot to them. See for yourself… From Breitbart: Most Democratic voters say that they believe former President Barack Obama was a better president than founding father and first U.S. president George Washington, according to a recent poll. The Monmouth University poll found that 63 percent of Democrats thought that Obama was a better president than Washington. Only 29 percent of those polled thought that Washington was better than the 44th president. Democrats need to stop with their praise of Barack. He literally did nothing good for eight solid years, outside of presiding over the killing of Osama bin Laden. Heck, even 2020 Democrat candidates bashed 44’s record like it was their job at the second debate. Longtime Obama aide Valerie Jarrett just doesn’t get it, though.
