US Living Wage activists tour UK

Submitted by Anon on 4 June, 2006 - 11:57

Brie Phillips and Diane Foglizzo from the US student Living Wage Action Coalition (pictured above with Laura Schwartz of No Sweat) have been on tour with No Sweat. They have been touring UK campuses promoting campaigns for Living Wages for all campus workers.

Diane was a student activist at Georgetown University, and was an organiser and hunger-striker during the Georgetown Living Wage campaign which lifted wages for low-paid campus cleaners.

A series of US student initiatives that link worker struggles to student solidarity now form the biggest protest coalition on US campuses since the Vietnam war.

This practical, effective movement should inspire UK students and shows a way forward to home-grown initiatives like Students Against Sweatshops and People and Planet.
