labor momentum grows

The signs are around campus, the OpEds (pro and con) continue to float around, and the Crimson continues with good coverage. Labor is finally back into the mainstream discourse at Harvard after a few year hiatus. The Student Labor Action Movement got good coverage in the Crimson of its hosting of Georgetown activists for a teach-in, and Mike GW had a great column explaining the economic and moral justifications for a living wage. Read the column. Seriously.

If you already support a living wage at Harvard, or decide you do after reading Mike's excellent column, sign the petition here!

If you want to learn more about the living wage campaign, check out a panel tomorrow night (Thursday) where you will hear from Harvard janitors, Harvard security guards, and an international human rights delegation. 7:30. Sever 113.

word word word!

also, this panel (with discussion break outs so its not someone just talking at you the whole time) is intended for people who maybe dont know if they support a living wage. if thats you, come, ask questions, talk with workers, figure this out for yourself. we arent trying to shove an ideology down your throat, but let you know whats up and let you make your own informed decision.
