The White Houseâ€™s Flickr account recently released a photo of President Barack Obama and his top advisers. The complete absence of women in the image is another reminder that females are underrepresented in Obamaâ€™s staff.
The Obama White House in 2011 paid female staffers 18 percent less than their male colleagues:
According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).
The Obama reelection campaign, though better, was also a bastion of inequality:
The Obama reelection campaignâ€™s female employees earned an average of $6,872 during that period, compared with an average of $7,235 for male employees. That is a difference of $363, or 5.3 percent.
The annualized pay difference is more than $2,100 per year.
Do you know when Obama and the Democrats will call off the war on women?
