wage for assistant bread bakers?

June 4, 2012 - 6:52am -- Tedsbreads

I am trying to figure out what a fair wage should be for an assistant bread baker. I work 3 nights a week in Massachusets where the minimum wage is $8 per hour. My initial pay was $10 and after 3 months and some tough negotiation I was bumped up to $11.50. I don't have schooling in bread baking but I have experience baking a lot at home and working in a bakery for a few months.  My main tasks are weighing, shaping, cleaning up, and mixing dough.
