President Clinton may have had trouble meeting his campaign pledge to cut the size of the White House staff, but he seems to be meeting another promise -- to pay White House employees less than the previous administration did.

The Clinton White House can't crow about the lower pay, however, because it won't talk about individual salaries at all.

Despite repeated requests for a list of who works at the White House and how much each one earns, the White House declines to say. Requests for salary lists from members of a congressional committee that oversees the White House budget also have been turned down. Last week, Patsy L. Thomasson, director of the White House Office of Administration, said that information is private, even though taxpayers foot the bill.

One senior official cited privacy concerns and how much angst it might cause if everyone at the White House knew how much everyone else made.

The Washington Post, which published salary lists in the final months of the Bush administration, has obtained printouts of computerized salary information for the Executive Office of the President covering those on the Clinton payroll as of Sept. 11. A review of hundreds of workers and their pay shows that the highest salary, for the chief of staff and assistants to the president, was $125,000, compared with $134,000 for the highest-level Bush staff members.

Salaries for lower-level employees show comparable reductions, and hundreds of lower-level staff members receive very low pay by Washington standards. Comparable jobs in congressional offices, for example, pay more -- and in private industry much more. While $125,000 is the most any staff member is paid at the White House, the average salary for the head of a Washington corporate office is $134,000 this year, according to a study by the Foundation for Public Affairs. Most of those executives receive bonuses.

The White House, unlike Congress, is not compelled by law or regulation to reveal individual salaries. In the Reagan administration, requests for an individual's salary were filled, but a full list of all workers and their salaries was not. The Bush administration also refused to routinely provide such information until its final year, when it turned over a salary list, comparable to the one obtained by The Post last week, to a congressional committee.

While the Clinton salaries generally are lower than those for comparable positions in the last days of the Bush White House, only a pay quirk allowed for that. A 3 percent pay raise took effect in January, boosting White House salaries. Compared against that high-water mark, Clinton's salaries seem lower, but compared to salaries in December they are about the same.

This page lists staff members and their salaries selected from the computerized payroll document. Names of hundreds of other career workers; Defense Department, State Department and CIA workers detailed to the White House; employees on Congress's payroll; and some employees not on the September payroll have been omitted, as have those of White House staff members paid less than $25,000.
