Chelsea Clinton Misuses Wage Data

March 29, 2017

Chelsea Clinton is the latest Clinton wrong on the wage gap.

She tweeted out a Business Insider animated map video that “shows how much less women make than men in every state.” In Arkansas, where her dad served as governor, it is 21.1 percent. In New York, where her mom served as a senator, the gap is the smallest at 11.3 percent. The largest gap is in Wyoming, 35.6 percent.

This presentation of the data makes it seem as if a man and a woman with the same educational background who work the same hours in the same job are paid differently, specifically that the woman is getting the short end of the stick. After watching this video, Wyoming women should be especially outraged and some might move states.
