Occupation: The Harvard University Living Wage Sit-In

Posted on: October 3, 2003 | Views: 2,530 | Comment

During the time that the university's endowment tripled and it enjoyed a more than $100 million budget surplus, it busted unions and cut the pay and benefits of its lowest paid and most vulnerable workers. Students organized a living-wage action which culminated in an occupation of the president's building and national attention to their cause. It became part of a national movement on university campuses for living wages for non-faculty workers. These kids fought the Man-- and they won!
