Robert Gibbs: Press Secretary Earned about $33.11 an Hour

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has annual compensation of $172,2000. Given that the Press Secretary's job requires at the minimum about 100 hours a week, that adds up to about 5,200 hours a year, based on a 52 week year. Most of the rest of you put in about 2,080 hours a year. Given his minimum of 5,200 hours, Gibbs earns, at the most, about $33.11 an hour.

However, after he leaves those long hours in the White House, Gibbs could probably earn as much money as he wants to earn. That's called The Revolving Door Syndrome.
