Support Stanford workers in their fight for a living wage!

Statement from the Stanford Living Wage Campaign:
A living wage is the minimum hourly wage required to support a person’s basic needs in a given region, such as Santa Clara County. Stanford says that it has a living wage policy, but the current policy has several major flaws:

1. The policy covers only a few hundred of the thousands of service workers at this university. That means that many Stanford employees cannot afford basic necessities such as food, childcare, transportation, and housing. The current policy excludes all workers who join a union or who are employed by on-campus businesses such as the Coho or the Stanford Bookstore, as well as many others.

2. Stanford has refused to document how it determines its living wage, so it is unclear if it is actually sufficient to allow workers to live decently.

3. The current policy has not been consistently enforced. There have been many cases of workers who were supposed to be covered actually receiving less than the living wage, and the contractors who committed these violations have not had to face any penalties.

We therefore call on Stanford to reform its living wage policy.

We believe Stanford University should have a real living wage policy. We call on President Hennessy to remove the current policy's restrictions on eligibility, to create a mechanism to enforce the policy, and to do this in a transparent and democratic manner with binding input from Stanford students, workers, and faculty.
