Graduate TA's are usually given what is called a 20-hour appointment, but it's understood that they really won't be working that many hours each week.
If the supervising professor has research money, the grad student can go on a research assistantship instead of a teaching assistantship and receive a similar (though usually slightly lower) salary for doing their graduate research.
