White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday that “we still have more work to do” at the White House to have equal pay for women there.
“The statistics that cited about the country is about 77 cents on the dollar and here at the White House it’s 88 cents on the dollar,” Earnest said. “So the White House is doing appreciatively better than the country as more broadly. But we still have work to do at the White House.”
According to data released Tuesday, the average male White House employee makes about $88,600. The average female White House employee earns about $78,400.
