The latest data released by the White House reveals that the administration of President Joe Biden made significant progress in pay equity between men and women. It is the narrowest gender gap since the figures were first published more than 20 years, during the administration of former President Bill Clinton.

Women who work in the Government House are very close to achieving equity, win 99 pennies for every dollar earned by a man.

The gender pay gap in the country is for women, of 82 pennies for every dollar earned by a man. Minorities are the most affected, African American and Hispanic women earn much less.

During the administration of President Donald Trump, the gap widened more and reached the highest in recent years, women won 63 pennies on every men's dollar.

The average annual salary for women in the Joe Biden administration White House is 93.757 Dollars, while that of men is 94.639 Dollars. Women represent the 60% of employees and occupy the 56% of positions of power in the current government.
