Rep. Capuano highest-paying boss in Congress

Caught Our Eye Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Thursday, March 22, 2018

If you're a Republican Hill staffer looking for a bigger paycheck, it may be time to consider switching parties. Democrats make up 6 of the 10 highest-paying members and, on average, pay a median salary that's $652 higher than their GOP counterparts, according to a new LegiStorm analysis of congressional salaries.

Democrats pay an average salary of $52,142, while Republicans average $51,490. These numbers include bonuses, if any. Those differences could be accounted for at least in part by the fact that Democrats tend to represent more urban areas, which are more expensive. The pay figures include district staff, so districts with high costs of living will need to pay staff more.

We have found LegiStorm to be the ultimate tool in communicating with congressional offices, either individually or with a group. We have been able to reach out with messages to all chiefs of staff and legislative directors, or staff dedicated to specific areas. We believe that this ability was instrumental in passing two key pieces of legislation which were imperative to our members.

I have found LegiStorm essential for my job and quite surprising in its capabilities. For an arts presentation I needed to give on Capitol Hill, I was able to automatically download key arts staffers associated with all members of the Congressional Arts Caucus. I also able to find staff with "art" in their education backgrounds, so they got invited too. Definitely fun, and useful.

The data provided by LegiStorm stands out as the best Congressional data available. The accuracy and organization of LegiStorm's data has meant that I've been able to greatly speed up progress on my research. I have no hesitation in recommending LegiStorm to all types of researchers, journalists, lobbyists and other political professionals.
