Hillary Clinton has signed up for speaking circuit and will charge a whopping $200,000 per appearance, an amount more than her annual salaray as the US Secretary of State.
The $200,000-per-speech fee will be a sizeable increase for 65-year-old Clinton, who made $186,000 annually as secretary of state before stepping down earlier this month.
"Now that she's out as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton isn't going to be hurting for money, thanks to speaking fees of more $200,000 per speaking appearance, according to a source familiar with the situation," Buzzfeed reported.
Clinton will be represented by the New York-based Harry Walker agency, which also represents her husband Bill Clinton, the former US President. According to a CNN report from July 2012, Bill has earned, on average, $189,000 per speech since he entered the circuit. In other words, his wife is already making at least $11,000 more per speech than his historical average.
Clinton, however, according to Politico, will do some speeches pro bono, particularly those for the charities and the causes she champions. She will also be involved in non-profit work.
