According to The Chronicle, the Richmond County pay-per-day proposal for substitute teachers (assuming no more than 15 days in the same classroom) runs as follows:
Less than four years college, $40 per day.
College degree, $45 per day.
Valid teaching certificate, $55 per day.
Retired teacher, $55 per day.
In another story concerning the wages of the United Parcel Service we see a comparable difference between the part-time teachers' wages and the part-time UPS workers' wages. The UPS wages runs as follows:
Part-time driver begins at $8 per hour or $64 per day.
Proposed average for these part-time drivers is $12.13 per hour and $97.04 per day by 2002.
The salary scales for full-time teachers vary and were reported as average by The Chronicle. However UPS full-time drivers currently average $19.95 per hour or $159.60 per day with a proposed average by 2002 of $21.50 per hour and $172 per day.
