You may or may not know that currently SWA (Students Without clAsses) is protesting Washington University’s low pay of service workers. At first I was for them. Then I was against them. But as of today I have decided that I am for them, whole heartedly. Why, you ask? Because they are looking out for me.
Now, I haven’t looked into the details, because frankly, I don’t have the time. From what I understand, tho, SWA (Students Withholding from bAthing) wants the university to pay its service employees more money, because currently they are making below what is necessary to survive. And all this time I thought that I just had bad spending habits.
You see, I am in a service position here at the University. I fix people’s computers. And I’ve always thought that my salary was a little low. It is really hard to make my car payment, apartment payment, go out every weekend and buy new clothes every month on this salary. I can barely afford to keep a girlfriend! I didn’t think I was in a position to complain, however. I’m lucky to have a job in the current environment – I shouldn’t complain that I couldn’t afford the sunroof, right?
Well apparently I have every right to complain about not being able to buy real diamond stud earrings. (Note: I took the earrings out.) SWA (Slackers With Alackofanythingbettertodo) has shown me that I deserve a wage that I can live on. I thank them for that.
SWA (Suckerscaughtupin Workerswhodon’tlikethem’s Agenda) is really great. I sure hope that come next they’ll have made a difference not only in the smell of the admissions office, but the size of my checking account.
