Good news for students at West Texas A&M University, mostly for their wallets.
Starting September 6th, the minimum wage for student workers at WT will be raised to $10 per hour.
Dr. Walter Wendler commented on the raise as a great benefit to students, for both debt avoidance, and to assist in a students educational future.
This is also a benefit for the campus, being able to keep relevant in the job market, where many other jobs have seen similar increases.
After the 6th, all new hires will earn between $10 an $12 an hour, depending on position.
WT is estimating around 220 student jobs this fall semester.
This is one of many improvements to the college done in part to the university’s long term plan, WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World.
