Members of the House of Representatives continue to struggle with staff turnover even after efforts to increase pay and approving a measure that allowed staffers to form unions last year.
According to LegiStorm, which tracks congressional staff rosters and salaries, 2022 had the second worst turnover rate since at least 2001, which is when the website started tracking this data.
Retention improved by about 8% in 2022 from 2021, which was the House’s worst in decades. In 2021, 55% more House staff members left their jobs than in the preceding year amid the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol and the coronavirus pandemic.
