How much to pay for part time assistant?

I hope you are having as relaxing of a Sunday as I am.  

In a few weeks I have some back to back weekends where I'm going to be slammed.  I'll be needing some help and I'm thinking a good idea would be to get an assistant to take care of the smaller items and running around.  

For a part time assistant, what would you pay per hour?

Taking on help is more involved than just what to pay. I used some assistants when I did event photography and always paid them by the job, a percentage of my profit. Things are also different now, your gear or theirs? Have a contract yet? You need one. Where will you find your help? Insurance? Taxes? What's the experience expectations?, etc!
Labor is by far the biggest expense for 99% of businesses....

Why so serious?

I haven't got that far yet, was going to post ad on Craigslist or paper.  Wanted to figure out pay first. 

Thanks!
