Minimum Wage Rises this Fall
-- $5.15 per hour --
Effective September 1, 1997, the minimum wage for all student employees will be $5.15 per hour. The
University will automatically raise the pay rate of any employee under the minimum as of this date. The pay
rates of other employees may be adjusted accordingly.

A Deans, Directors, and Department Heads memo has been issued with suggested pay ranges for employees,
based on job responsibilities and the abilities and skills required. Six classifications have been established
listing typical jobs in each class along with suggested pay ranges.

Rates of Pay ABOVE $8.00 per Hour Must Be Justified
Class 6 employees starting at $8.00 and up will be approved by existing evaluation procedures. Hiring
supervisors must submit a Pay Rate Justification Form to Student Employment. The letter of justification must
include the specific duties and responsibilities of the position and the student's qualifications, experience, and/
or education. See the sample Pay Rate Justification form in your Student Employers' Handbook.

President Clinton's "America Reads"
Program Comes to UF
Federal Community Service continues to expand at UF. Plans are currently underway with the College of
Education and the Alachua County District Schools to participate in the President's "America Reads" program.
This is a new program promoted by the federal government to use university students eligible for Federal Work-
Study (FWS) as reading tutors to help all children read well by the end of the third grade.

UF plans to create a local program to use approximately fifty FWS students as reading tutors in county schools.
If you know students who may benefit, have them check with Student Financial Affairs in S-107 Criser Hall about

Eligibility for FWS and OPS will be monitored by financial aid coordinator Peggy Myers. Employment
coordinators should contact her at 392-1275, ext. 3367, to determine eligibility for either program. Off-campus
