UMW Administration Perpetuates Poverty Wages

The inequalities at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA are alarming. President Anderson’s salary skyrockets over a quarter million dollars, while the salaries of many full-time classified employees are below the poverty line. President Anderson receives free housing, in a mansion paid for by the University, while the employees I’m speaking of have trouble finding affordable housing anywhere near Fredericksburg. While President Anderson lives in decadent opulence and leisure, some workers who are receiving poverty wages, carry UMW pagers and are on call 24/7 in case an intoxicated student vomits or urinates on the floor of our residence halls at 2 in the morning. This stratification exists daily in our immediate community, and this is why the UMW Living Wage Coalition organizes for workers rights.
