There’s a senior writer for proclamations who makes $50,000, a $62,500 deputy director of video, a $78,000 director of African American media, $153,000 director of online resources, a $75,000 director of surrogate booking, and a gaggle of $36,000 correspondence analysts, who we presume are the people who read the mail.
