    The stats say women earn less overrall, doesnt imply that they actually are paid less individually. IOW, there could simply be somewhat less women working in the white house compared to men. Unless Im reading that chart wrong.

    Need more information.

    This chart doesn't tell me what positions.

    Show me something which compares pay for people in similar positions or with the same qualifications. This is a general overall average of WH staffers' pay.

    You can investigate how the chart was created; on the other hand, you can investigate how Obama came up with the 77% figure for women compared to men overall in the US. The Obama figure doesn't account for any factors whatsoever. It doesn't look at women in a certain job position versus men in the same position. It is just an overall figure.

    However, the study in the article is looking only at men versus women in the same job position: White House staffers.

    So all White House staffers perform the same job functions with the same level of experience? If not, then this doesn't seem like a very sound argument.

    Take it up with http://www.aei-ideas.org. Obama's study is far less precise than this one.

    What do you know about American society. There has been an Equal Pay Act since 1963. Did you know that? Have even you looked into the issue at all?

    If there is an equal pay act, then why is it they(supposedly) pay women less in the white house?

    Probably because the White House isn't accountable to anybody.
