I'm about to re-work my "contract" at the cafe. I've been working for Temple for over a year and a half, and I'm one of the "top dogs", so to speak. I'm on extremely good terms with the Big Kat, and I feel that, since I'll be doing more stuff with our new location (roasting, more 'cafe' responsibilities, etc), I figure I could use a little raise (the Kat has brought this up, as well). We haven't thrown around figures yet, and I want to be fair to him and myself.
As of right now, I'm just king barista: typical 40 hour+/week shifts, almost all of them weekday mornings (i.e., "the money" shifts), plus I do most of the internet work for the coffeehouse.
So, I guess the big question is: For a barista (or an employee, rather) that is going to be working the bar, doing roasting stuff (roasting, bagging, etc), website work, and maybe some other "office-paperwork" stuff, what would you consider to be a fair hourly wage?
note: This was a discussion that died (and wasn't properly worded, on my part) in the "retail coffee" forum, so I closed that and moved it over here.
