I've heard that Bethellites there for many years get higher pay, anybody can confirm this? (I've heard close to $300/month)
Also, if they are to be a spiritual example to all.... then why do Bethellites work saturdays
instead of supporting local KH in preaching? (supposedly they get 1 sat off a month?)
That wasn't the case when I was there in the early 90's. There are always special circumstances, so maybe some of the families that are there get a larger chunk, but either way, its not a whole lot of money.
Good point about the Saturday service...most view it as they ARE doing their service on Saturday morning though, just a different aspect of it.
Everyone at Bethel while I was there received $120 (CDN$) per month.
Seniority or years in full time service did affect the amount placed into the PEA (Personal Expense Account) which amounted to about $300 per year for someone with 10 years seniority)/
Nethel used to calculate (late 80's) that the average Bethelite costs $5,000 - $6,000 per year, factoring in actual money paid to them plus the cost of having other Bethelites there to provide the various services.
Damn cheap labour force.
average Bethelite costs $5,000 - $6,000 per year
Here in the US there must be job cutting in the plans, for there are drops in contributions.
