      In USA, you are enrolled as a phd student (not employed) and have to pay tuition fees. Generally, you will get a scholarship to cover your tuition fees and some teacher assistant money.
      For postdoc, however you will get 35 to 5000 $/year (before tax) depends on the position and the university.
