College Kids - A Worker's Best Friend?

Well maybe or maybe not. Professor Bainbridge certainly has one side of the argument with his photo post, On not having a clue, discussing the irony of littering campus with posters in support of those workers whose job will include picking them up. [Thanks to Professor Volokh of the Volokh Conspiracy for the heads up.] Actually the fact that college kids might be clueless about having someone pick up after them, does not strike me as exactly news, but Professor Bainbridge makes a good point.

On the other side, in fairness to the college age activists, the Georgetown student hunger strike in support of living wages for campus workers did seem important to the Georgetown's administration "compromise agreement" on a living wage for its employees. Check out A Living Wage Victory at the Georgetown Independent.
