WHO: UC Berkeley student food service workers and their supporters who feel that it is unfair for Cal students to be paid over $2 less per hour than their coworkers doing the same job.

Student Worker Action Group (SWAG) is an organization formed by UC Berkeley student food services workers. This week it is holding a series of public events to bring attention the fact that Cal students working for Cal Dining are paid over $2 less per hour than their coworkers (starting wages are $9.11/hr and $11.25/hr), and to call for pay equity at UC Berkeley.

WHERE: Golden Bear Café (Sproul Plaza) and Crossroads Dining Commons (Channing Way and Bowditch St.).

STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR SOMETHING: “EQUAL PAY TODAY!”

20% Strike at Golden Bear Café (Sproul Plaza), 11am-1pm
