After one year in office, President Joe Biden’s White House staff shrank at a significantly faster rate than the staffs of his immediate predecessors, an analysis of a staffing report published by the Biden administration confirms.
The White House has been required to publish its full payroll dating back to 1995. In total, 2022’s report lists 474 people employed by the Executive Office of the President as of July 1, 16 of whom are listed as unpaid detailees, fellows, policy staffers, and one staff secretary. The report shows a more than 15% decrease in the total number of White House staff. The 2021 report listed 560 employees, with 41 not taking salaries.
