Student Sit-Ins Across Country

Most recently at Wisconsin-Madison and Rutgers, but also at William and Mary, Emory, and elsewhere, United Students Against Sweatshops and fellow students have staged sit-ins at the offices of universities’ administrators to protest budget cuts, tuition and fees increases, and lack of respect for workers. While much more needs to be done to raise awareness of and pressure against such anti-students, anti-workers actions, this is an encouraging trend that workers and students ought to strongly support. Go here to lend much-needed support for the USAS campaigns for good, affordable education and workers’ rights.
