Analysis: Top White House Women Out-Earn Their Male Colleagues

CATHERINE THOMPSON APRIL 10, 2014, 11:39 AM EDT

Conservatives made hay over the White House push for gender pay equity after a study highlighted its own wage gap between the sexes, but they were missing part of the picture.

The Washington Examiner explained Thursday that although an American Enterprise Institute study showed that female staffers earned 88 cents for every dollar their male counterparts earned last year, the salary data also showed that women actually out-earned men among the highest-paid White House staffers.

Based on the same 2013 salary data, the Examiner found that 70 of the 150 White House staffers making more than $100,000 were women. Those top female aides earned $128,600 on average compared to $120,600 for top male aides, the publication found.

As the Examiner pointed out, those salary figures represent an increase in the number and percentage of women in top-earning White House positions over the last two years.
