The gender pay gap for White House staffers is three times larger under the Trump administration than it was during President Obama's last year in office, according to a think tank's analysis. Conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute (AEI) on Monday found that since Trump took office, female staffers are making a median of $72,650 while male staffers earn a median of $115,000. "The typical female staffer in Trump's White House earns 63.2 cents per $1 earned by a typical male staffer," AEI scholar Mark Perry wrote - a gap of nearly 37 percent. The pay gap stood at about 11 percent during former President Obama's last year in office, and the national pay gap clocks in at roughly 17 percent, the report said. The data, compiled by AEI and reported on by The Washington Post, found that when median salaries are used instead of average salaries, the pay gap shoots up from the initial 20 percent difference first reported on.

74% of Trump's top staffers are male compared to Obamas 52%, which is from your own source. Weve pointed it out numerous times already. You need to read the full article with these hard left sites. The facts tend to be buried in the bottom of the article.
Trump has said that he backs equal pay for women and in February called helping women in the workforce a priority for his administration.

Your article is factually dishonest. How can you compare pay when people have different job titles? This is like comparing the janitor and a dr, yea both work at the hospital, but hold completely different duties.

Gender pay gap for White House staff triples under Trump
Looks like our misogynist in chief is at it again making sure women make and get employed even less than when Obama was in office. Where are the screams of not fair by the right wingers who complained when Obama didn't pay women enough? May be Donnie should talk to his daughter who wants women treated better in the workplace.
