- In Globe Live Media we tell you what are the salaries of those who work in the White House, the official residence of the US president. In which there are people who have six-figure salaries
The White House is the official residence of the president, and the first family, of the United States. But, at the same time, it is the main workplace of the US president, which makes it a symbol of national politics and an organizational center in which more than 450 people work (474, to be totally accurate).
And, in case you didn’t know, since 1995, the White House must send a report to the United States Congress with the titles and salaries of each employee of this federal institution. This allows elected representatives, and citizens, to know what the salary of those who work in the White House is. If at any time you have wanted to know this information, you have come to the right place.
The truth is that the salaries of employees in the White House vary greatly depending on the specific position in which they perform, and there are even certain advisers who do not charge money for their work.
The lowest salaries for White House staff are in the range of $40,000 to $50,000 a year. This is the common salary for employees with positions of assistants, analysts, video producers and some researchers.
From this range, salaries increase in line with the importance of the positions, and can reach up to $180,000 dollars a year for direct advisers to the President of the United States. This is the case, for example, of the Presidential Assistant and Director of Oval Office Operations (the official office of the president that is located in the West Wing of the White House).
The highest salary of the White House staff in the US, according to the report published by this institution in July of this year, currently corresponds to the person with the position of Director of Intergovernmental Affairs for the Implementation of Infrastructure, which is assumed by Stephanie R. Sykes, who is currently in the White House on secondment. This position has an annual salary of $183,100 dollars.
As a curiosity, there is a position called Director of Hispanic Media, which has a salary of $63,875 dollars a year.
It should be noted that these salaries are the so-called base salaries, which implies that other contractual benefits for being part of the White House staff are not included.
