Every year on July 1, the White House is required to disclose the pay of its employees.
Women working in Donald Trump's White House are experiencing a gender pay gap worse than the USA national average, according to new analysis by CNN. When Mark J. Perry, an economist at the conservative think tank The American Enterprise Institute, analyzed the data he found that "The typical female staffer in Trump's White House earns 63.2 cents per $1 earned by a typical male staffer", Perry writes.
There are, of course, women making high salaries at the Trump White House Office. Twenty-two employees are paid that much, including nearly all of the most well-known members of the administration.
The White House has not responded to CNN's request for comment. The top salary for permanent employees at the White House is 179,700 dollars.
As with many topics, the White House has given mixed messages on its dedication to ensuring equal pay between the sexes.
In addition to men being paid more, there are also more of them on the White House payroll: 200 compared to 174 women.
President Trump's daughter Ivanka sees herself as an advocate for closing the gender pay gap, tweeting on April 4th that '#EqualPayDay is a reminder that women deserve equal pay for equal work.
Roll Call used first names and publicly available news reports and social media pages to determine employees' genders.
