UMW announces "living wage" increase

In response to a long campaign by students, faculty, and campus workers, the University of Mary Washington's President Anderson has aggreed to raise the wages of campus employees. The campaign included the take-over of administrative offices last Spring--direct action got the goods and brought the college to the table.

QUESTION: What do you think of the below announcement, IMC readers? Are you involved in a similar struggle? What's the status of your efforts? What does this mean, if anything, for the efforts to raise the minimum wage in Virginia above the 5.15/hr level set by the federal government?

Please comment below and begin a discussion of strategy and tactics...
