The White House Gender Pay Gap Is Worse Than The US Average

Women at the White House earn 80 cents for every dollar earned by men. The national average is 82 cents

CNN found men working in the White House earned $104,000 on average compared to women taking in $83,500.

Some news outlets, including CNN, Roll Call, and Newsweek have reported a 20% White House pay gap because they used average, rather than median, salaries in their calculation.

Days after the White House announced that it had ceased operations of its Council on Women and Girls, the Trump administration released data on its staff members' pay.

In terms of the number of people employed at the White House, the staff is evenly split, with 47 per cent female and 53 per cent male employees respectively. But then, Ivanka is not paid a White House salary, nor is her husband, and her father is allegedly donating his pay, so why would she care? Out of the 22 employees who do earn that amount, only six are women.

When it comes down to gender pay gap, Obama's White House was not ideal but the difference was narrower: in 2014, the difference between the median salary of a male compared to a female staffer was 13 percent, lower than the then national average of 23.5 percent, the Washington Post reported. Perry also notes in his analysis that of the top 101 highest-paid White House employees, almost 75% of them are men.

Ivanka Trump took her plea for equal pay for equal work directly to CEOs at a Tuesday summit at the White House.

The gap between Trump's female aides, who make a median salary of $72,650, and his male aides, who make a median salary of $115,000, is more than double the nationwide 17% pay gap, and larger than the national gap has been in over 35 years, according to the Pew Research Center. A few months ago, he rolled back Obama-era equal pay protections for women with an executive order.

According to the U.S. Labor Department, American women earn 82 cents for every dollar earned by American men.
