Making a Living with Hillary and Chuck

For anyone interested, a recently launched website called Legistorm has a bunch of information on Congressional staff salaries.

Here, to pick one legislator completely at random, is a list of salaries from Hillary Clinton’s staffers from October 2005 to March 2006.

It’s interesting to note, for the sake of comparison, that salaries in Hillary Clinton’s senatorial office were slightly behind those of the staff of her more senior colleague, Chuck Schumer. (Hillary’s chief of staff, state director and communications director all get paid slightly less than their counterparts in Schumer’s office.)

But Hillary does seem to have slightly more legislative aides on hand, plus a speech writer and agricultural advisor. Schumer doesn’t list any such titles, although, unlike Hillary, he does list a specific payment for an “immigration advisor.”
