However, a spokesperson for Worldwide Speakers Group would not confirm to FOX Business on how much Spicer would be paid. But according the company’s website, fees range from $10,000-$25,000 to as high as $40,000-$60,000 per speech. Jen Psaki, former White House Communications Director under Obama who is also a listed speaker, makes around $10,000-$15,000.
