I would also support a revision of the guidelines to version 2.0, to address these changes and also the issue of fair pay. There have been many instances of researchers saying they will only pay $6/hour because that is what the Dynamo guidelines say. They’re using this as a hard fact and are not open to discussion of anything close to minimum wage because “Dynamo says $6/hour in it, so that’s all we’ll pay”. I also know some workers who will not send the Dynamo guidelines link to researchers because they don’t want them to see the $6/hour figure. I’d really like to remove this $6/hour part and replace it with a variation of the current points about things to consider when deciding how to set pay.
