I started at $22 an hour as a coach and received annual raises. Raises are about $0.70 an hour (I think) Four years later and I am making 25.50 an hour which is pretty average for government funded social project work.
The starting wage is around 45,000 per year . You sign an employment contract ,but it is only valid for as long as the program you are working on.
On the lower end of the scale considering the amount of work expected of the new hire
