Percentage of employees of on-site contractors known to receive a living wage or be covered by collective bargaining agreements (i.e., union contracts):

Total compensation provided to the institution’s lowest paid regular, part-time or full-time employee or pay grade meets or exceeds what percentage of the living wage?:

A brief description of the minimum total compensation provided to the institution’s lowest paid employee or pay grade:

The minimum hourly rate for staff (Administration & Professional and Classified positions) is set at $15/hr. Thus total compensation provided to the institution’s lowest paid regular, part-time or full-time employee or pay grade does not meet the living wage.
