These Are The Top Salaries for White House Employees
West Wing Receptionist: $48,800
Unlike White House junior digital designers and executive assistants, the West Wing receptionist makes more than their apolitical brethren with a salary of $48,800 per year. Receptionists outside of the White House average $30,350 per year, as of May 2018. In 2016, the Obama Administration hired the first deaf White House receptionist, Leah Katz-Hernandez, affectionately referred to as ROTUS by the president, ABC News reported at the time. Today, that position is held by a woman named Hannah Zakaria, but no West Wing receptionist could be more iconic that The West Wing‘s Deborah Fiderer, played by Lily Tomlin.
