(CNN) – Is the pay fair, or unfair for women working at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?
In a word: fair. The White House has a pay grade for each title, and male or female, those people holding those roles within each level make exactly the same amount.
Where it gets ambiguous, and this keeps coming up, is that when the same kind of average the White House uses to continually push for more equal pay in America, is applied to the White House pay then, yes, there is also still a pay gap.
