Just how much do White House staffers make right now? This might surprise you.

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- More than 40 percent of White House staffers earn in excess of $100,000 a year. And some of the wealthiest aides to President Donald Trump aren't paid at all.

The White House released details of staff salaries on Friday. Among those forgoing pay are Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner.

A presidential assistant for intragovernmental and technology initiatives, Reed Cordish, is also going unpaid. He too comes from a real estate family.

Other aides such as Gary Cohn, formerly a top executive at Goldman Sachs, are working at a steep discount of $30,000.

Twenty-two of Trump's aides, including some of the White House's biggest names, are earning $179,700.

They include chief strategist Steve Bannon, chief of staff Reince Priebus, press secretary Sean Spicer and senior counselor Kellyanne Conway.
