White House Wage Gap

Even women in DC make twice as much.

Press Secretary Jay Carney defended the White House’s hypocrisy on gender wages by saying that, though they’re addressing the disparity, women making 88 cents on the dollar compared to men “is better than the national average.” As we’ve documented time and again, the Left’s larger assertion of wage discrimination is thoroughly debunked when factors such as hours worked, level of risk, educational background and uninterrupted work experience are taken into account. In truth, though, the White House actually does pay its women less than the national average – including the District itself. The Daily Caller reports, “The pay gap among women in the White House is more than twice as large as the average in the nation’s capital. While female White House staffers earn about 88 cents for every dollar men in the White House make, women in the District earn about 95 cents for every dollar men make, according to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.” Meanwhile, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee pays women just 70 cents for every $1 men earn.
