I used to live in a co-op where 8 hours of work a month was expected.   If
you couldn't do it you paid instead.   The pay should be what it cost to hire
labor to do it from a labor agency like Labor Ready   which in our case was $15
an hour.   Four hours could be counted for committee work that was done during
the month by an individual, but the other 4 hours would have to be paid for.
 This built up a fund so that we could hire people to do some of the things
that weren't getting done otherwise.
