Breaking news! The cage-free egg survey responses are in!
Here are the results:
In a stunning vote of 89.1% to 10.9%, the student body overwhelmingly wants cage-free eggs to be solely used in preparing our food. This is the most unanimous result of a union survey that I can remember.
In fact, a sweeping 63.5% to 36.5% vote is willing to pay incrementally more for food if it is prepared in an ethical manner. Economics professors correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that the higher cost of eggs would (according to standard models) be split between Aramark and the students.
High five everyone! We really got out the vote and showed that Brandeisians want to live in an ethical environment. More on this later.
