Faculty and graduate students Fight for $15 and a union in Richmond

Thousands of women and men from across the country endured the heat to make a powerful statement for the underpaid workers’ movement as they convened in Richmond, Va., over the weekend to Fight for $15 and a union.

Faculty and graduate students, janitors, security guards, child care providers and other service workers from more than a dozen industries joined together in the former Confederate capital and marched to a statue of
Robert E. Lee to connect today’s movement to the consequences of slavery
and segregation.
