Ceil Strauss didn’t even want to do the math. She was afraid, she said, at what the figures may show.
No, she’s not a volunteer for the HFC United soccer program in Hastings. She gets paid an annual stipend of $1,500 in her role as president. The math she didn’t want to do was related to how much per hour that equaled. With four to 10 hours of work per week for HFC United, it’s understandable that Strauss would be afraid of the figure. Taking the average of that (seven hours per week), she makes a whopping $4.12 per hour.
