I know this has been posted before, but this issue is so important I need you to tell ALL of your friends.
I have been reading in the news about other college campuses where students have made fierce campaigns to support workers. Right now, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, students are protesting for worker’s rights. Check it out here. Students at the College of William and Mary were arrested for peacefully protesting in the President’s Office (check out our coverage here). In Atlanta at Emory University there was a protest against food and facilities giant Sodexco.
As social justice is important to us all, Brandeis must join the fight for workers to be treated fairly, with respect, and with dignity.
Here is the message from the BLC:

to create a strong contract. Our motto is: Raises, Rights, and
Please sign the petition and forward widely: http://j.mp/SupportWorkers
