Job Corps pays you a living allowance in cash twice a month. New and readmitted students receive arrival pay in the amount of a $25.
After that, the amount of your base pay depends on the number of days you are eligible for payment. For days 1-182, you receive $25 every two weeks. After 183 days, pay is increased to $35.
Just like a real job, taxes are deducted, and you'll receive a W-2 at the end of each year.
