Insider analyzed that data for foreign workers applying for permanent green card visas and temporary H-1B, H1B1, and E-3 visas at the five largest holding companies and top independent agencies.</p><p>The listed salaries are determined by "prevailing wages," or the minimum required for similar jobs with similar qualifications, which are also listed in the OFLC data. The Department of Labor uses these totals to protect US employees' pay and prevent educated immigrant labor from being exploited. Final salaries are considerably higher in most cases.</p><p>These numbers don't include every type of visa or pay rates for US-born employees or compensation beyond base salary. They also do not include CEOs.</p><p>Spokespeople for the five companies either declined to comment or did not respond to requests for comment.</p><h2>WPP paid healthcare executives $178,000 and top creative leaders up to $880,000</h2><p><img src="https://static4.businessinsider.com/image/5f2aa01158c24d78dd79f2b7-900/mark read wpp.jpg" border="0" alt="Mark Read WPP" style="color: #000000;" data-mce-source="WPP">WPP employs around 100,000 people in over 110 countries.
