A brief description of how the institution ensures that its lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) receive sustainable compensation:

Brandeis compares pay with other higher education institutions in the Boston area and compares pay with industry in the area and northeast region. The data collected depends on the marketplace for that particular
position. Wages are established by position, in general we are paying above the minimum wage. Our lowest paid positions are more then double the minimum wage. A living or "sustainable wage" was determined to be $13.69 an hour for this area.


The most recent year total compensation for the institution’s lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) was evaluated to ensure that it was sustainable:
2,010
