Student Priscilla Little Comments on Pay for Student Jobs on Campus

Friday, November 21, 2014
GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- While outside organizations operating on campus must pay the city minimum wage, work-study positions and other jobs where the University is the direct employer must only pay the state minimum. For this reason, some students avoid on-campus employment. “On-campus jobs are a last resort,” said Creative Writing major Priscilla Little. “I’m not going to get a job that pays me less if I can go across the street and get one that pays me higher. It’s hard to support yourself, especially as a student.”
