Which ticket price should I select?

We try to keep our events affordable for all. We use a sliding scale to take into account different levels of financial well-being, so that people on a low income can still afford to attend. As a gauge, we expect that people in full time employment would pay the full amount and people in part-time employment pay somewhere closer to the mid-range. It would be appropriate for students and beneficiaries to pay closer to the base end of the scale.
