white house pay
So, state and local governments are turning to layoffs to help with tight finances. Those poor bastards will hate seeing this.

CNN:
Working at the White House includes long days, work on the weekends, and a demanding, high profile boss.

But just how good's the pay at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.?

According to a salary list released Thursday, 23 White House staffers make $172,000, while two "detailees" – Michael Harsh and Timothy Love – top the list at nearly $180,000. "Detailees" are employees from other government offices who have been assigned to work at the White House for a period of time.

The majority of President Obama's senior aides – including Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, and adviser David Axelrod make $172,000 a year – the same salary they made last year because the president ordered a freeze of top-level White House salaries.

But the majority of staffers make considerably less, with the average salary is $82,700 a year, while the median employee salary is $66,000. The lowest full time salary is just under $38,000 a year.

Obama himself earns $400,000.

In all, the White House employs 469 staff members for a total payroll of nearly $40 million.
So, getting your $40 million worth?

The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
