Pay has always been incredibly low as student workers even for Grad Students. It was like that a long time ago when I was in school and I had to work two jobs and take out loans to support myself through school. I know of other students who slept in cars between working at Starbucks and Noah's Bagels. Yes - they worked multiple jobs as well.

That's what it takes to survive as a student. Hence, reference to starving students.

It's not right but that's always the way it has been. We move on to better paying jobs eventually.
