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

Beginning in 1995, Congress has required the White House to report annually on those working for the president, listing their titles and salaries.

Men in the White House earn almost $104,000 on average, according to CNN, while women receive an average salary of about $83,000. Across the country, women earn 82 cents for every dollar men take home, according to the Labor Department. 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?

But personnel in Trump's White House generally cost more than those in Obama's, with a median salary of $89,000 compared to the $73,051 earned by a White House staffer in 2016. Twenty-two employees are paid that salary and six of those are women.

In July 2016, the American Enterprise Institute analyzed the White House's report from that year, and found the pay disparity has increased under Trump.

State media says the security forces intercepted the two other auto bombs, suggesting they were controlled explosions. As they closed in on the third vehicle near the city's Al-Tahrir Square, the suicide bomber on board detonated it.

While the White House staff is comprised of 47 percent females and 53 percent males, the evenly-split staff still experiences a disparity, which is also due to the fact that women are employed in lower-ranking jobs. In April, equal-pay advocates criticized the president for signing an executive order that rolled back a regulation meant to protect women's ability to earn the same as men.

Interestingly, it is the same Trump government, whose advisor Ivanka Trump herself tweeted against gender pay gap on April 4, saying, "EqualPayDay is a reminder that women deserve equal pay for equal work".

The news of the wider gender pay gap in Trump's White House comes as his administration considers disbanding Obama's White House Council on Women and Girls, responsible for monitoring the implementation of policy changes and liaising with women's groups, as reported by Politico.
