These Are The Top Salaries for White House Employees
Director of Stenography: $95,500
If the last time you heard about stenography was during a regional production of Thoroughly Modern Millie, you are not alone. To most, stenography is a thing of the past, but the White House keeps a staff of stenographers around to record everything the president says, then submit the recordings to the presidential archives. Trump’s director of stenography earns $95,500 per year, but former Obama stenographer Beck Dorey-Stein told NPR that Trump barely uses his stenographers, doesn’t understand what they’re supposed to be doing, and has given them significantly less access in the White House.
