Regine, how many hours per week or per month is considered a fair share? I'm wondering how much $25/hour would add up to if someone isn't participating. Also, what kind of work counts towards your required/recommended workshare hours? Meal prep/cleanup? Committee-type work? I assume physical maintenance work always counts.
