Wages to increase for campus employees

Effective Jan. 1, 2016, Chico State plans to boost employees’ minimum wage from $9 to $10 per hour which will change automatically through payroll.

The pay change comes as a result of California increasing its minimum wage to $10 in January as well.

“We are making more money and could help pay for the rise in tuition and books,” said Kelsey Larson, Sutter Dining Hall and WREC employee. “It would be nice to have a little extra to actually have savings as a college student.”

This wage increase will be applied to all on-campus positions, but focuses on work study and student assistant positions.

The pay plan can be viewed on the Chico State website and the Student Employment Office can be contacted for further questions.
