The Living Wage Campaign Rally
Saturday April 7 – 1:00 pm
Local 965 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is holding a rally noon-1 p.m. Saturday, April 7, on the plaza outside Fayetteville Town Center for the U of A Living Wage Campaign. It will feature several top speakers.
A significant segment of university employees are paid less than commonly accepted living wages. Also, graduate teaching and research assistants though generally part time rely heavily on their pay, which is substandard. One proof is how heavily the campus’s 7-year-old Jane B. Gearhart Full Circle Food Pantry is used. College pay is the focus of a petition we’re circulating and will emphasize at the rally (during the Farmers’ Market). It will be submitted to top officials of this campus and the UA System.
