University presidents show lack of leadership on wage issues

John T. Casteen, Charles W. Steger, Eugene P. Trani, Paul S. Trible, Jr.,
Alan G. Merten, Roseann O. Runte.

What do these six people have in common? They are all presidents of
universities in Virginia -- the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech,
Virginia Commonwealth University, Christopher Newport University, George
Mason University and Old Dominion University, respectively.

What else do they have in common? Their compensation packages provide them
with more than $364,000 a year (with Casteen's being $690,000), and the
institutions that they head are major employers in the communities in which
they are located.

And what else? All six have shown a lack of leadership when it comes to
making sure that all their employees are paid a living wage.
