A brief description of the minimum total compensation provided to the institution’s lowest paid employee or pay grade:
Part 3 response based on wage of Step 1 of Classification 11 (custodial position). At time of STARS 2.2 completion, SEIU (Classified union) Collective Bargaining Agreement 2019-2021, $12.60 per hour wage . Total full-time compensation which includes insurance, retirement, holidays and sick leave = $52,000 per year, which divided by 12 months equals $4340 per month or $25 per hour. At 0.5 FTE (80 hrs/month), the wage of the lowest paid employee would be $16.35 per hour, just below the living wage standard. Part-time employees working less than 0.5 FTE results in a total wages and benefits which fall under living wage standards. There are employees that work less that 0.5 FTE at the University, therefore some of the lowest paid employees would not meet the living wage standards.
