Gavilan Community College--Gilroy, CA
Tutor pay rate:  year 1--$9.00 hr, year 2--$10.00 hr
Federal work study is paid at the same rate.
Pay rates went up approximately 4 years ago, when we began competing with
other tutoring programs, grant funded after school programs AND In and Out
Burger, which starts employees @ $9.00 hr.  The argument that fast food pays
employed more to flip burgers than we do for a retention activity did get
the point across.  It is important to note that the pay rates went up, but
the budget was only increased slightly.  Over the past two years we have
managed to get to the previous level of funding.
