The total compensation provided to the institution’s lowest paid regular (i.e., permanent) employee or pay grade meets or exceeds what percentage of the living wage?:
None of the above (i.e. the lowest paid regular employee or pay grade earns less than the living wage)

A brief description of the minimum total compensation provided to the institution’s lowest paid employee or pay grade, including any in-kind benefits included as part of the total compensation figure :

We have a very few entry level administration employees that start at less than the living wage although quickly progress with merit and cost of living increases.

Additionally, Research Technicians: we have a variety of grant-funded research technicians who are typically paid on the lower end of the spectrum. This is primarily due to the fact that there is limited funding available from the grants.
 Residence Directors: These employees are also paid on the lower end of the spectrum. However, they receive room, board, and some meals due to the nature of their work, and this is not factored into their total compensation package (as in, there isn’t a value placed on it, and it is not a taxable benefit).
