- Harvard University
University, Cambridge, MA
Harvard is home to one of most
successful and longest running campus living wage campaigns. The
Progressive Student Labor Movement's efforts established a "parity
wage" university policy and a worker's center, and strengthened
union presence on their campus. In addition, their campaign convinced
many other student groups around the nation that campus living wage
campaigns could succeed in changing in universities employment practices.
