An excerpt from "Most of Us Want to Get Paid for the Work that We Do": Lessons from the William and Mary Living Wage Campaign:

"On August 14, 2001 groups of tourists and school children as well as historic interpreters dressed in colonial costumes were distracted by a boisterous group of African-American women custodial staff and faculty and student supporters staging a rally to announce the formation of an independent labor union at William and Mary. The event was part of an eighteen-month living wage campaign organized and spear-headed by a coalition that crossed multiple boundaries of race, class, and status. The campaign had collected 2600 signatures on a petition, held mass rallies and candlelight vigils, and maintained a noisy picket line at Merchant’s Square.

Three weeks after this August rally, the college president announced raises and benefits improvements: A 22% wage increase for the lowest paid workers that brought every campus worker to at least $8.50/hour. The following winter campaign members voted to affiliate their independent union with the United Electrical Workers Union (UE)."

By Annan not publicly addressing this very serious
issue, will not be fooling me he hasn't heard it

entirely by "comprehensive, extremely detailed"
measurements. So what the hell is going on about
supporting our world community by not condemning war
crimes?, Just where is Annan on the issue of an
international commitment kept I want asked religiously
across this world. Now.
