Potentially Exploitative U.S. Substitute Teacher Labor Issues

Potentially Exploitative U.S. Labor Issues And Ways To Overcome Them

Kelly Services is one of a few companies that hires and manages substitute teachers.  However, what was found when researching this for substitute teachers is the following potentially exploitative labor issues:

Starting with Massachusetts - Factors - State Minimum Wage is higher than the Federal $7.25 per hour. Which means besides Massachusetts - several states are underpaying substitute teachers; simply based on state minimum wages. 

An associate's degree + is only paying $60 a day for up to an 8 hour day, due to an alleged law in Massachusetts that says they do not have to pay subs the same minimum wage per hour that they pay the rest of the state.  A law, three (3) employees. at Kelly Services stated exists; but for the fact that none of them could name the law. I also  could not find such a law. If such a law exists, it can only be deemed antiquated.

Those who hold an Associates or Bachelor's Degree are paid a wide variable in Massachusetts ranging from $50 to100+ a day. In other areas of the country that rate is as low as $40 per day per the National Educational Association
Federal Minimum Wage FMW

Albeit, some school districts across the country only require a H.S. diploma or G.E.D. the pay rate does not meet the Federal Standard in a surprising amount of districts nationwide.

The FMW came about to protect those who did not pursue additional education after high school and are in need of protection, it is currently $7.25 per hour across the United States.  The current rate of pay to subs with an associate's degree is as low $50 in Mass. if at 8 hours it is just $8 under the Federal Law and if at the average 7 hour day it is still missing federal guidelines by .75 cents.

As such, a lawsuit could be potentially be implemented against all school departments in Massachusetts and/or other states that pay less than the State's Minimum Wage Law. Massachusetts minimum wage is $10.00 per hour which means subs should be paid minimally 70-80 per day. 

When there is an increase by State Law over Federal Law it must be equally applied to all of it's working citizens.  States can give you more protection that what the federal laws grant; but never less than.  Moreover, they must not discriminate against any one group of it's citizens. 

Infact, the research clearly articulates that other cities Nationwide are also at risk; because they are not paying their state minimum per hour or even the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. By not doing so they are discriminating against those subbing after retirement and/or parents who are working for a 2nd income while their children are in school and those who are pursuing degrees or those seeking teaching jobs who are subbing.  

Even though access to benefits is available for those who work 2 days a week under Kelly Services it woefully cuts down on their take home pay.  A very bad message for students and potential future Teachers. 

Employment Sites like Indeed show that the Average Substitute Teacher salaries for job postings nationwide are 53% lower than average salaries for all job postings nationwide.
