Seventy-percent of the White House staffers who made the top annual salary of $172,200 in 2012 were men and 30 percent were women, according to a White House report on staff compensation.
In addition, men on the White House staff are paid, on average, $86,260.89 and women are paid, on average, $76,162.65. That means the average man on the White House staff is paid about $10,098–about 13 percent–more than the average woman.
In Obama’s White House, women on average earn only 88.3 percent of what the men earn.
Those numbers conflict with the pay-equity philosophy espoused by the president and his administration.
In signing legislation into law — the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act — in 2009, which was designed in part to help ensure pay equity between men and women, President Obama said, “So, in signing this bill, I intend to send a clear message: That making our economy work means making sure it works for everyone. That there are no second class citizens in our workplaces, and that it’s not just unfair and illegal–but bad for business–to pay someone less because of their gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion or disability.”
