Women in WH Earn 80 Cents on the Dollar Compared to Men

Women working in Donald Trump's White House are experiencing a gender pay gap worse than the United States national average, according to new analysis by CNN. Women in the White House are making 80 cents to every dollar men make, according to a CNN analysis based on the White House's annual report to Congress. The average salary among male employees - who make up 53 per cent of the White House staff - is nearly $USD104,000 (roughly $AU136,000), while women are earning $US83,000 ($AU108,000). Among the 22 second highest paid employees, who make $179,700, only six are women.

They include chief strategist Steve Bannon, chief of staff Reince Priebus, press secretary Sean Spicer and senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Surely, she must be working hard to make sure the gap is closed and that the White House presents itself as an example to the American labor economy. According to the White House document, Ivanka is getting paid a salary of $0.00 for her role as "first daughter and advisor to the president". The Washington Post found in 2014 that women in President Barack Obama's White House Office made less than men, but at an 88-cents-on-the-dollar rate, which is higher than what women earn in the Trump's administration.
