Minimum Wage Increase for Student Employees

Please be advised that the base wage for student aides has been increased from $7.15 per hour to $7.25 per hour.  This increase is consistent with the federal minimum wage law which will be raising the hourly rate to $7.25 effective July 28, 2009. We will be implementing the new rate on July 1, 2009, because this is the start of the federal work study award year.

All supervisors of student employees are urged to monitor budgets since the increased wage rate expends College work study awards and budget allotments more quickly.

If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please contact either Jerome St. Croix at ext. 2278 or myself at ext. 2048.  Your attention to this matter is appreciated.
