"I feel like I am being paid the right amount as I used to work for 20 hours a week while taking classes. Being paid $15/hr is almost as twice as the average minimum wage job. Moreover, the experience that I gained working as an Undergraduate Research Assistant was priceless and honestly all I cared about at the time was gaining the experience, not the money."

"I didn't know that my pay was a third of the average for my position, so that kind of stings. But, considering I started in undergrad, I can understand why it's that way. We have limited to 20 hours a week, after all. I'm sure PhD researchers do get more, since they can work 40 hours."

"I have heard that graduate students at other universities make more. However, based on the cost of living at my home institution, I believe I am being compensated reasonably, especially since my compensation includes a tuition waiver. There is little to no room for moving up within the university for graduate students. After graduation students usually seek employment at other universities or in industry."
