Over 400 UW classified workers do not make the Madison living wage and over 900 make under $15 an hour. The typical Wisconsin state employee has taken a 22% wage cut in the past six years. Graduate student workers have seen a take-home pay decrease of 15.2% since 2002.
An embarrassingly high number of campus employees don't make a living wage!
The University has money for building expansions, more deans, new facilities, but not workers? It's time to invest in the workers of this campus.
