This may not be gender discrimination. If you think about it, the reason is really simple. The president is a man. The vice president is a man. All the secretaries except 1 is a man. There are only 2 women secretary, the secretary of education, Betsy Devos, and the secretary of transportation, Elaine Chao. There is only 1 woman administrator, the administrator of small business, Linda McMahon. It seems to me the salary gap is due to job level rather than gender discrimination. Low level employees obviously don't earn as much as high level ones. It's not like a fries maker at McDonald's has the same salary as the CEO of Lockheed, regardless of gender.


The gender pay gap in President Donald Trump’s White House is even worse than the national gender pay gap more than three decades ago.



After the White House released its annual report on the title and salary of every single White House Office staffer Friday, CNN quickly pointed out the stark difference between the average salaries: Women staffers make an average of $84,500 per year, while male staffers make an average of $105,000 per year. That’s about a 20 percent pay gap.

Are these for the same jobs or are we comparing apples to oranges again?

The gals should find nice young men, settle down, get married and have babies.

Then they won't have to worry their pretty little heads about numbers, money and math.

Apparently, it's not the same jobs. On CNN's original article it says the following.


The disparity is primarily due to more women filling lower-ranking jobs. Half the men working at the White House make $95,000 or more annually, while half the women $70,100 or less. The top salary for permanent employees at the White House is $179,700. Among the 22 employees making that, only six are women.

Good point. The reason whites are becoming minority is not enough babies even though they earn far more than African Americans.

CNN is in a major lawsuit in Georgia for discrimination for both race and gender.(especially race discrimination . the network that states nearly everyone is racist and/or sexist is about to have their a** sued off for the exact same reason)
Another reason if the AT&T deal goes through , AT&T may drop CNN like a hot tater
Play a role in it ?
They just do not learn , do they ?

I wonder what the percentage of woman staff are?

Watch it work out to about 6/22

Fox and CNN are being sued. The CNN is much larger.

www.hollywoodreporter.com...


Unlike the lawsuit against Fox News, the one against CNN and sister companies is much broader, claiming among other things that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a "glass ceiling." The complaint (see here) cites hiring and advancement statistics while alleging that African-American employees have endured slurs from superiors, including "It's hard to manage black people" and "Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?"


Can CNN REALLY be this stupid to run a story pointing at the White House while they are accused of doing much worse.

I think you are correct. This is more about the positions, their level within government and their corresponding pay, not about gender.

Its always apples to oranges, always.

Be it different positions, different hours worked, different time in the company, etc.

The pay gap via wage discrimination has been debunked time and time again, the earnings gap (which is real) is almost always down to choice

i maybe be wrong but doesn't the government set pay scale for employees.

nope i'm not,


so i guess it depends on what their pay grade and what step their at. so trump had nothing to do with it.

the table comes from here, warning opens a pdf.
www.opm.gov... eave/salaries-wages/salary-tables/pdf/2017/DCB.pdf

Of course they were MIA under the Obama admin gender pay gap.

Remember sheeple, gender pay gap is only important if a Republican is in office. Otherwise it's perfectly acceptable.
