A Survey of the Salaries, Benefits, and Working Conditions for California Child Care Resource and Referral Staff.
Kinley, Gary J.; And Others
This document reports the results of a survey of resource and referral programs and their parent agencies. All the agencies were members of the California Child Care Resource and Referral Network. The survey instrument was a 96-item questionnaire divided into four sections: (1) staff salaries and qualifications; (2) working conditions; (3) benefits; and (4) agency profiles. A total of 48 agencies, or 84 percent, responded to the survey, which was conducted between May and July of 1991. The report presents data on staff salaries by position for the sample as a whole and for various subsamples according to agency characteristics. Data on working conditions relate to the work day, staff training, personnel practices, and staff meetings. Data on employment benefits concern holidays, sick leave, and vacation; leaves of absence; insurance; salary reduction plans; and retirement benefits. Agency profiles describe the gender, racial, ethnic, and age composition of resource and referral staff. Data presented in 21 tables and 9 figures accompany the discussion in the text. Based on the data in the report, 15 conclusions are drawn, and based on these conclusions, a series of 12 recommendations is offered. The survey cover letter and questionnaire are appended. (BC)
