Protesters Demand UVa Contractors Living Wage

Fifty protesters gathered at the Rotunda at UVa on Saturday to demand that the University pay subcontracted workers a living wage of $8.65/hour. To accomplish this, UVa would have to require of all contractors (such as Aramark, Morrisons and ServiceMaster) that they increase the pay of their employees at UVa. In Sunday’s Progress, UVa Board of Visitors member Terence Ross said that the living wage would be on the agenda for the next BOV meeting, but the Board Secretary says that isn’t true. Josh Goodman has the story in today’s Cavalier Daily.
