Not us. I think our last .50 raise was two years ago.

This will be my fifth year subbing and there has been no change in pay with any of my districts. 😡

The teachersí union negotiated a raise for the new contract, and subs always get a raise when the teachers do. Not earth shattering, but Iíll take it!

We got a pretty decent raise 2 years ago so I'm not expecting anything for quite a while.

The main district I work in did not raise their sub pay in over 10 years, and finally starting in Sept., we will be getting $100/day. It is a $10 per diem raise, which will surely make a big difference. Here in NJ, the min wage will be going up to $15/hr soon, therefore I believe they felt pressure from that. Also, every surrounding district raised their pay recently, so it was only a matter of time.

One district gave us a $10 raise three years ago, and another gave us a $25 raise two years ago.

My largest district took away $10 ten years ago, and never gave it back, but they are also the only district that pays more for some jobs. The range is 125 to 192, although 75% of the jobs are 125

No raises here that I know of. A couple of years ago a district did introduce a sub incentive plan. $80/first 20 days, $100/21st day until the end of the school year. BTW they have paid $80.00 since 1999.

One of my districts did go with an outside agency. According to what I've been told we lost the pay for lunch and recess coverage. Seems sub agency can't figure out how to pay us for that. So I'm guessing if I sub there I'll have one or the other everyday.

Not a single interview either. First time ever that has happened.

Sub pay went from $70 to $75 per day a couple years ago. They had offered some tiered bonuses after so many days of subbing for the year, but they took that away with that increase. So overall, my yearly pay went down.

Our district went up $1 per hour which puts us at an hourly rate of $18. We do not get paid for our 30 min. lunch break so our daily rate for 7.5 hrs. is $135.

Just now caught my mistake. We went from $96/day to $100/day 2 years ago. Oh well, it beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

I didn't say anything because I could see some district actually doing just that; giving subs a 4 cent raise and being proud of that.

Oh wow! I really thought Mooba meant .04 per day and thought, "How insulting!" Though I can't say $4 is very much either, sorry....

Wow Yayasub, I didn't think anyone paid less than our $80/day (but I am not a certified teacher). No raise here.

Good point. I am not cerified either. Is pay higher in the states that require that subs be cerified teachers? Anyone know?

I believe so. Our district will only hire former teachers. They also have to have 3 letters of recommendations from teachers/principals they worked with in order to sub.

We received small raises about a year ago and now make about $100/day.

Thinking back . . .
It's hard to find information about sub wages 40 to 50 years ago, but I recall being told that subs earned about $25/day in 1967 in my Midwest district. In 2019 dollars, that would be about $192!

My starting salary as a teacher in the late 70s was about $10,500, and I think that was about average for the time. In today's dollars, that would be about $44,400. Back then, student loan payments weren't a major problem, and we didn't have to pay any of our health insurance premiums.

I'm getting out in a year or two, and I honestly don't know how young teachers make it financially these days.

I happen to know that subs made $33/day in my school district in southwestern Pennsylvania in the 1967-68 school year. A friends mother subbed for our class and told us what she made. It sounded like a lot back then. I also know that starting teachers in that district made $6500 in the 1978-79 school year.

I canít believe how little some of you get paid. One district went up to 200 a day, but Iím certified with a Masterís. You def make more if you are certified and some districts wonít let you in a classroom without a current teacherís license.

Thanks, Nietzsche, for the old salary information! The $33/day sub wage in 1967-68 sounds about right for the era, and if you look at that figure in 2019 dollars (about $243), it shows that our earnings haven't kept up with inflation.
Not even close.

The $6,500 starting teacher salary in 1978-79 was probably on the low side at the time (about $25,536 in 2019 dollars), but I don't doubt your information. The only bright spot for those young teachers was the fact that they probably had annual salary step increases (although that might have changed when the recession started in the early 80s).

A nearby district really takes care of their certified subs! They are advertising $3.11 more per day than for uncertified subs!

It would be nice if you all mentioned the State where you work. I think sub pay varies a lot by state. I believe CA and NY pay the highest ($150-$200/day) and more rural areas get paid the least ($70-$80/day range). If you are in the suburbs of a larger city, then around $100-$110/day. Does this seem accurate?
