A bombshell report from the American Enterprise Institute showed that the Biden administration has on average a 20 percent pay gap between male and female staffers — despite touting leftist feminist politics to the public.
AEI’s assessment showed that of the 518 staffers, the majority were female (58.9%) and the White House has an average pay gap that is above the national average.
The statistics were based on the annual payroll records required from the White House by Congress, which began in 1995. Along with and salary, job title is also required in the report.
The White House has been open and seemingly proud of their majority women staffers, saying that “women makeup approximately 60% of staff” and reporting that “This surpasses the 50.8% share of the national population who are women per the 2019 U.S.
“Census and the 47.0% share of women within the labor force as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. It is also the case that across every level of seniority within the White House there are more women than men.”
Salaries for staffers range between $48,000 for positions such as “staff assistant,” “analyst,” and “coordinator” and a maximum of around $180,000 for 15 women and 9 males. The highest-paid staffer is reportedly Policy Advisor For Immigration Molly Groom who makes $185,656.
While the White House has claimed credit for “narrowing the gender pay gap” according to various media reports here, here, and here according to AEI their way of presenting the data is inherently flawed, making their claim of “the most diverse Administration in history” fall flat.
The Biden administration’s staffing methods have caused “the most gender favoritism and the most gender discrimination in its hiring practices to achieve the greatest ‘diversity’ gender imbalance in history. “
