  • We pay the MA minimum wage of $11.00 per hour for 20 hours a week while you continue to seek unsubsidized employment.SCSEP is a transitional program, not a destination. Think of SCSEP as a bridge from unemployment to a job. If accepted into the program, you will be looking for a job while working on the program. Your goal will be to obtain an unsubsidized job as soon as possible.
