You get what you pay for.
The minimum pay rate for SAYF-guards starts at $12/hr.
Compare this to the median hourly wage around the state:
- Tampa Bay ($10.54)
- Miami ($10.63)
- Orlando ($11.07)
- Bureau of Labor Statistics
Additionally, we do not decrease the pay rate if the guard is moved to another site. Many companies will pay based on the location of work. This can create a bait & switch type of situation in which someone may be hired for an $11/hr job but be told only the $10/hr site is available.
