Middlebury College entry-level jobs to get pay raise

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. (WCAX) About 80 Middlebury College entry-level jobs got a boost in pay after recent complaints about a salary change at Middlebury College.

Spokesperson Sarah Ray says the salary range for three categories of entry-level work is now $14, $15 and $16. That's up from $11, $12.07 and $15.22

She says she's aware that's caused what's called compression issues -- that's when there's little difference between the pay of someone with less experience and someone who's been at the college for a while.

That's why she says they've hired a firm to conduct an analysis.

"Middlebury remains committed to providing staff with compensation that is competitive with the market rate," said Ray in a statement.
