Students Advocate for Liveable Wages in Washington, D.C.

Georgetown University students ended a nine-day hunger strike when the University administration agreed to improve wages for the low-paid custodial, food service, and security workers. The student group utilized the Self-Sufficiency Standard for the District of Columbia in their campaign advocacy. The negotiated agreement included raising the minimum hourly wage to $13 beginning July 2006 and annual wage adjustments based on the Consumer Price Index.
