Some of the employees are paid nothing at all while others get top dollar
President Joe Biden's administration unveiled the annual salaries for all of its White House employees Tuesday, sending the list of all 474 employees to Congress.
The salaries range from zero per year to $180,000, with the vast majority of employees making over $100,000. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is one of 24 employees who make the maximum $180,000, alongside domestic policy adviser Susan Rice and a smattering of other legal and policy advisers.
There are also 16 employees who receive no salary at all, listed at zero per year. They include Biden's senior adviser for immigration, Ramzi Kassem, and his special policy adviser for economic policy, Justin Levitt.
The White House is required to disclose the salaries of its employees in a report to Congress each year.
