At a recent meeting (April 15th, 2008) with President Hodge, Students for Staff requested that Pres. Hodge make a personal commitment to implement our living wage proposal. His response? “No”
So, we asked him to designate a living wage as a fiscal priority. Again, he said “No”.
President Hodge has said that the staff are the heart and soul of the university but he won’t acknowledge that a living wage should be a priority!
What did he say at this meeting? “A living wage will be a part of the discussion during negotiations next year.”
That’s right, folks. Next year is union contract negotiations and we all need to be behind the staff 100% during this time. We won’t just make a living wage part of the discussion, we will make it part of the reality. Are you ready?

To celebrate autumn, and all that it entails (like cold weather, unpredictable Ohio rains, and beautiful red leaves), we’ve got some surprises for you!
First, the campaign is really gaining steam as we network with organizations and people from all over the country. We’re building connections with supporters of the living wage movement at large, and we’ve already got some famous names. Do you want to publicly support the Students For Staff campaign to get a living wage for Miami workers? Go join Noam Chomsky and the Center For American Progress in endorsing our campaign!
Second, a few of our veteran members collaborated recently, and put together a pretty comprehenseive history of Students For Staff. It’s a fascinating story, and we hope you’ll read it all.
Third, our website just got a big overhaul. Not only does it look prettier (well, that’s a matter of opinion), but the changes take a lot of burden off of our webmaster! (and that’s a fact). If it gives you any trouble, please contact us!
Finally, this semester is going by fast, and we’re not wasting any time. A number of interesting projects are in progress, and we want you to be informed! To help keep track of the news updates on this website, we’ve set up an RSS Feed for you. Just click on that big orange button, or here, to sign up.

Thanks for reading! Let’s close with a chant:
What do we want? A living wage!
When do we want it? Now!
