Hey Big Spender! An Analysis of Australian Universities and How Much They Pay Their General Staff
Dobson, Ian R.
Australian Universities' Review, v51 n1 p39-47 2009
Analysis of aggregated data files on staff sent by all Australian universities to DEST in 2007 and of salary schedules posted on university websites reveals a considerable variation between salaries paid to general staff at each salary level and the relative seniority of those staff. This paper outlines the differences in staffing structures and identifies the higher-paying (and therefore the lower-paying) universities in a sector that is otherwise notable for its convergence rather than its diversity. (Contains 5 tables and 1 figure.)
