US House To End 180-Year-Old 'Page' Program

Each page costs between $69,000 and $80,000 per school year to taxpayers -- more than the most expensive US boarding schools, as well as most colleges and universities, said the two leaders.

In modern Congresses, there have been about 70 House pages, each of whom earns a monthly gross salary of $1,804.83, from which taxes and a 35 percent room and board fee are deducted, according to the program's official website.
 

I guess it beat a paper route or working at the supermarket.  WOW!
