Equal pay, equal work still a dream for Sherman women

  1. San Fernando Valley, CA — Congressman Brad Sherman trumpets his support for equal pay (Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009) but the sad truth is he pays the women who work for him much less than he pays men for doing similar work.

  2. (Oct. 29, 2012) Women leaders from the San Fernando Valley and pay equity experts held a conference call with the media and released information showing that Brad Sherman discriminates against women in the workplace. The information they released is available from Legistorm, an organization that tracks salaries and gifts to members of Congress and their staff. The period covered was from 2000 to 2012.

    @LWV @bradsherman hypocrisy towards #fairpay. Male staffers paid 1.2M more than women.
  4. The seriousness of the issue was underscored by Janice Kamenir-Reznik of Encino, Co-Founder of the California Women’s Law Center. “This is not just a small matter. You have a situation in Brad Sherman’s office where you have twice the money being paid to men as women –not 10% — but twice as much.”

    Concerns over relative experience of employees are misplaced said Kafi Blumenfield of Woodland Hills, the Executive Director of the Liberty Hill Foundation. “The experience gap is a non-issue because we know that there are extremely strong professional women who are running these offices every day. They should be getting paid fair wages.”

    “Women across the country are under attack,” said Lyn Shaw, Co-Founder of Democratic Women of the San Fernando Valley. “We need our leaders in California and in the Capitol to fight for women’s issues. If this track record is reflective of the type of leadership that Sherman is taking to Washington, D.C. we’re in trouble.”

Brad Sherman Prefers Men

ImageImportant points about pay equity for women:

Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act (2009) – Gives employees 6 months to file pay discrimination cases after each paycheck. Although Brad Sherman voted for this bill, the Congressman fails to practice what he preaches!

men and women pay comparison

Comparison of salaries between male/female staffers for Brad Sherman and Howard Berman from 2000-2012.

 

  • Sherman pays men 1.2M more than qualified females working in similar jobs over the past 11 years
  • Of Sherman’s 8 chiefs of staff, only one was a woman
  • 6 out of the seven male chiefs of staff made more than she did, even though many had less experience
  • Women staffers on average are paid only 53 cents on the dollar compared to men for comparable work.

 

This issue is more than just about equal pay for equal work. It also speaks to how women are viewed in the workforce. Wage gaps between men and women will have a lasting impact on families as well.

  • When a woman retires, her benefits will be 23% lees than the guy who had the same job she did.
  • Over her lifetime, the average woman loses enough in wages to feed a family of 4 for 37 years.
  • A typical woman who works full time, year round will lose $443,360 in a 40-year period due to the wage gap.
