The lowest paid part-time workers make minimum wage and are eligible to receiving compensation from the Community Income Equity Fund(CIEF).

The CIEF is available to all employees (including employees of the two permanent on-site contractors: Chartwells and C&W). CIEF is a fund paid in annual or six-month cycles to nominated employees who make less than a sustainable wage. Employees of GMC and both of its major subcontractors (Chartwells and C&W) may give voluntary donations to this fund as one-time payments or part of a regular payroll deduction. Any employee of any of the three organizations can also nominate employees to receive funding. The fund was established in 2013 by a group of faculty and staff who wanted to address income equity in the community.
