Ivanka works for free, but Trump White House can pay well

White House's annual report to Congress revealed that women working in the White House make 20,995 dollars less on an average, as compared to their male co-workers.

The gap between Trump's female aides, who make a median salary of $72,650, and his male aides, who make a median salary of $115,000, is more than double the nationwide 17% pay gap, and larger than the national gap has been in over 35 years, according to the Pew Research Center.

CNN reported on the White House pay gap as though men and women working the same jobs are paid differently, but the fourth paragraph of their report tells a different story.

The White House has not responded to CNN's request for comment. This gap is wider than the national average of 82 cents on dollar in the USA, according to Labour Department. Twenty-two employees are paid that much, including nearly all of the most well-known members of the administration.

While Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's roles in the White House have earned scorn and concerns about nepotism, neither Kushner nor Ivanka are receiving salaries for their positions assisting the president. We must work to close the gender pay gap!
