IT. SUCKS. SO. MUCH.
In each pay period I:
-tutor (10 hours)
-work the afterschool care program (13 hours)
-assist the music teacher (6 hours)
-teach my theater arts class (10 hours)
-work in the library (10 hours)
This comes out to 53 hours of work per pay period.
So yeah, a bit less than $5 an hour.
This does not include rehearsals, which is between 6 and 9 additional hours per week (or 12 to 18 hours per pay period). I am not paid for directing, as it is assumed to be part of my theatre arts class. Oh, and that doesn’t include the Saturday rehearsals.
If I added in the rehearsal time to include hours I actually work, I would make about $4 an hour.
