So my institution changed us from monthly to biweekly pay checks this year. Sounds great, right? Apparently this also changed the calculation for our Summer salary day rate from base/180 to base/195.
So our day rate is lower but we can now be paid for 45 Summer days instead of 40. Effectively, I'd have to work an extra week to earn the same Summer pay. Gee, thanks.
