Presidential Pay & Compensation: >Page 1, 2
Compared to Other Politicians
While the President's $200,000 salary pales in comparison to that of an NFL head coach, it is the highest of any American political office.
According to 1996 Bureau of Labor Statistics figures, average salaries for US mayors were about $12,000. Salaries for state legislators ranged from about $10,000 to $47,000 in the 40 states that paid one. In six states, legislators got a daily salary plus expenses, but only while the legislatures were in session. Two states paid a small daily salary only, and two other states paid only daily expenses.
Salaries of US governors in 1996 ranged from $60,000 in Arkansas to $130,000 in New York.
