Graduate Assistants have it hard
GoodBodies Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – October 5, 2017
Technically, student graduate assistants are paid via stipend, not salary with benefits etc. Typically, this works out to about $10/hr for 20hrs/week. Depending on the position, this may or may not be the case. I spent my first year working 40 hour weeks and didn't receive any additional pay because of the stipend parameters. GAs get a discount on school health insurance and occasionally tuition assistance as well.
work significantly more that what the stipend required
