    Sample Letter:

    Dear Mr. Fineberg,

    I am writing to express my concern about poverty wages on campus. I believe people who work at Harvard deserve to be paid enough to live in dignity above the poverty level and support a family. I urge you to follow the Cambridge City Council's lead in implementing a $10.25 per hour living wage policy. This is an opportunity for Harvard, as one of the most prestigious and wealthiest universities in the world, to set an example in fair employment practices.
