The women who work in Idaho Gov. Butch Otter's (R) cabinet make substantially less than their male colleagues, according to a McClatchy analysis of state salary data. Despite chairing the state Agriculture Department, for instance, Director Celia Gould makes less than male directors. Gould has been with the administration since its first day in 2007 and oversees 259 employees; Commerce Director Jeffrey Sayer, by contrast, joined the administration in October and oversees 53. And yet, Sayer makes nearly $40,000 a year more than Gould, the highest-paid female employee. In fact, across Otter's administration, the median wage for women is nearly $20,000 less than the median wage for men, McClatchy found: She is the highest-paid of the women in Otter's Cabinet but ranks just 16th among all top full-time officials. The median salary for 11 women in the Cabinet is $85,446; men - $103,002.
