Harvard students end wage sit-in

By The Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

Twenty-six student protesters left the Harvard University administration building where they had staged a three-week sit-in to demand a "living wage" for the school's lowest-paid workers. Harvard didn't give them exactly what they had sought: an immediate $10.25 minimum wage for all workers. But, the protesters said, the university agreed to reopen a subject it had considered closed, and announced that a committee of faculty members, workers, officials and students would reexamine wage policies.
