"There is nothing new about poverty. What is new is that we have the techniques and the resources to get rid of poverty. The real question is whether we have the will." -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.






Every day this week workers and students at The College
of William and Mary are holding events urging President
Reveley to make concrete steps toward implementing living
wages. After a year of intense campaigning and numerous
, the Living Wage Coalition gave President Reveley a deadline of Tuesday, April 12, to draft a budget proposal that includes increased wages for William and Mary's lowest paid workers.

On Monday, over 150 students, workers, community members and labor leaders from across Virginia rallied at William and Mary as part of the April 4 "We Are One" National Day of Action, coordinated with members from NAACP, Vox, and United Students Against Sweatshops. At the event, William and Mary's NAACP and Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha officially endorsed the Living Wage Campaign. With support on this issue continuing to grow, the William and Mary community needs the administration to take concrete steps toward implementing living wages.

On Wednesday, April 13 the Board of Visitors is meeting at the
College. If President Reveley fails to meet the April 12th deadline
students, workers, professors, and community members are prepared to step-up their level of
public demonstrations.

For the past 10 years, workers at the College of William and Mary have been speaking out about the poverty wages they receive. In Fall 2010, students and workers formed the Living Wage Coaltion, which is made up of students, workers, professors, community organizations, and faith-based organizations who are committed to fighting for fair wages on campus. Today, many WM workers must work 2-3 jobs to make ends meet and provide for themselves and their families, even after working at the College for 10-25 years. After 10 years of struggle, it is time to ensure that workers, who are a vital part of our Tribe family, are paid a living wage. We are uniting to create the kind of college and community we can all be proud of: one that compensates all of its members fairly and appreciates workers' valuable contribution to our WM community.
