Florida: Graduate assistants need to speak up "For dozens of years, Graduate Assistants United has publicly maintained that the work conditions for graduate assistants at UF has had a detrimental effect on UF’s academic competitiveness: the minimum stipend for a graduate assistant ranks among the lowest in the nation, and until last year, our employers did not offer to help alleviate the cost of health insurance. As long as UF persists in offering a student-, not employee-, based plan designed for those younger than 25, UF will not be competitive in this very important field."
