Bill 49-10

An Act to Update 4.50 of Chapter 4 of the By-Laws to Reflect Compliance with the Minimum Wage Laws

WHEREAS, the Missouri Students Association compensates the officers of MSA, and,

WHEREAS, the officers are compensated at different pay scales at or above minimum wage, and,

WHEREAS, the MSA By-Laws in Chapter 4, section 4.50, list the rate at which the officers receive compensation, and

WHEREAS, Section 4.50 currently lists three positions, Clerks of the Senate, President’s Chiefs of Staff, and BEC Executive Board members, as being paid below the minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, and,

WHEREAS, these positions are in fact compensated at the rate of $7.35 per hour, and,

WHEREAS, the by-laws need to reflect this change in order to prevent any misunderstanding of the MSA pay scales, and,

WHEREAS, the last time the minimum wage change effected the pay scale of the MSA, former Vice-President A. Cafourek submitted bill 46-33 detailing the changes needed in the by-laws to cover the increase in minimum wage, establishing a precedent for the up-dating of the by-laws

THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE MISSOURI STUDENTS ASSOCIATION SENATE that, Section 4.50 of Chapter 4 of the By-Laws be amended to reflect the current pay rate for the Clerks of the Senate, President’s Chiefs of Staff, and the BEC Executive Board members.

(A) COMPENSATION ALLOWANCES-The officers of MSA shall be compensated as follows:

The Two Clerks of the Senate: $705.60 per fall and winter semester ($7.35/hr x 6 hrs/week)

Two President’s Chiefs of Staff: $705.60 per fall and winter semester ($7.35/hr x 6 hrs/week)

The three BEC Executive Board members: $705.60 each per fall and winter semester ($7.35/hr x 6 hrs/week)
