    It’s vital that UVa do whatever it takes to provide a living wage to all its employees, absolutely including those who work for companies that contract with the University.

    A couple of specific thoughts:

    There’s a legal argument out there (though it’s been debunked on other grounds by the Living Wage Campaign’s lawyer) that institutions must negotiate contracts based on “best value” without regard to social good. I believe that, if necessary, an intriguing and worthwhile legal case might center on the idea that modelling “best practices” in the realm of equity and diversity as relates to workers could indeed be part of “best value” in a public educational institution. This is because the University’s mission is to educate its students, and many believe that civic education – the exploration of how resources and influence are accessed and deployed, and the ethical considerations that arise from this exploration – is a key component of education. `

    I feel also that when it comes to funding issues, people (i.e. alumni, parents, etc.) are galvanized by visionary stands, and moved to extend their financial support.

    I thank you for your extraordinary commitment and efforts!!!!
