White House Promotes Equal Pay for Women While Paying Women in the White House Less Than Men

The use of unadjusted raw salary data for pay comparisons is intellectually dishonest. Unless you control for the level of responsibility and experience, you have presented a confounded analysis. The example of comparisons of university faculty salaries by sex is actually a textbook example in statistics. Raw data shows that women are paid less. But when one controls for the fact that fewer women are in long-tenured senior rank positions (because women only recently entered academic positions in large numbers), the difference disappears.

On average, full-time working women earn just 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. This substantial gap is more than a statistic -- it has real life consequences. When women, who make up nearly half the workforce, bring home less money each day, it means they have less for the everyday needs of their families, and over a lifetime of work, far less savings for retirement.
