U of M Raising Minimum Wage

UofM’s president says he supports raising the minimum wage on campus to 15-dollars an hour. David Rudd sent out an email yesterday saying he’s asking for a study to be done to find out how the school can raise its minimum wage consistently, responsibly and sustainably. The Faculty Senate and Staff Senate at UofM passed resolutions last year supporting an increase in the minimum wage. United Campus Workers says nearly 340 UofM staff members currently make less than 15-dollars an hour.
