What: Event to raise awareness about living wage issues and labor rights on campus. A PBS documentary film illustrating the living wage campaign led by students from Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) will be shown. Following the film, a discussion will be held about how students can help workers in their campaign to improve working conditions and in their fight for a living wage.

When: 7:30 PM, Monday, May 5th 2008

Where: Ecumenical Christian Ministries Center (ECM), 1204 Oread Ave. in Lawrence, KS

Who: Student group KUWatch will co-sponsor the event alongside the Laborers Public Service Employee’s Local 1290

Why: The University of Kansas has routinely violated the conditions of a 2007 agreement regarding fair labor practices. While administrators and coaches earn six-figure salaries, the laborers who ensure KU operates smoothly earn less than a living wage. Students have a direct role in pressuring the administration to comply with worker demands and to help create a more just working environment.
