UVA Still Not Paying Living Wage -- UVA Students Still Not Eating

From MichaelMoore.com

'Why I'm Hunger Striking at UVA'

"... in our 'caring community,' hundreds of contract employees may make as little
as $7.25/hour ... I have experienced many periods of economic hardship in my
life. Growing up, I moved over 30 times – including various stays in homeless
shelters, the homes of family friends, and church basements. I know firsthand
what the economic struggle is like for many of these underpaid workers."
– Joseph Williams, third-year student at the University of Virginia
and player for Virginia Cavaliers football

Get the Facts
UVA would need to spend $4.2-5.8 million to pay all direct employees at least
$13/hour – or less than 0.25% of the university's $2.487 billion annual budget

'Same Thing, Different Century'
"I still view the University as a plantation ... the field workers aren’t going
to speak out." – Grace, former UVA employee

If Only the Woman Who Wrote This Were President of UVA
"Being paid a living wage for one's work is a necessary condition for
self-actualization." – Teresa A. Sullivan, The Social Organization of Work
