Kendra will earn less with Trump than she normally does.

Donald Trump’s first female apprentice is taking a pay cut for the privelage of working with him. Kendra “Todd says she’ll definitely be making less money than she has been running My House Real Estate,” the Palm Beach Post reports. But she’s still excited, saying, “$250,000 is a base salary. But I think it’s a heck of a base salary.” Kendra will begin by “working in Westchester, N.Y., for about three months with Carolyn Kepcher, Trump’s cool-as-ice vice president and Apprentice co-star, to learn the corporate ropes.” Then she’ll head down to Palm Beach. She has high hopes for her tenure with the Trump Organization, saying, “I have an entire presentation for him already with so many great ideas. I’m going to put Trump on the map.”
