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.
what is a TA?
$9 an hour is what I heard for Wash U...As a CS major I can just sit in a lab and do homework when no one's there though (which I assume is most of the time).
