Minimum wage is scheduled to increase each year through 2020. (View the increase by year.) We will update our website in advance of each increase.
Below are our student job classifications, working titles and pay ranges.
Using Midpoints in Salary Ranges: We recommend that you start a new hire between the minimum and the midpoint in the appropriate job code. This will leave enough room in the pay range for merit and longevity increases in the case than an employee continues to do the same job function over time. They do not need to be moved to a new job code simply to receive a pay raise.
