The Living Wage Escrow Account gives Harvard donors the chance to show that they won't tolerate poverty at Harvard. It is a bank account at Cambridge Trust Company whose contents will be released to Harvard University when they implement a living wage for all of their workers (including the subcontracted and casual ones).
Here's how you do it:
1. Make check payable to PBHA LW Escrow Acct (or pledge now, pay later).
2. Mail to Progressive Student Labor Movement, Phillips Brooks House, Harvard Yard, Cambridge, MA 02138.
3. Let the administration know that there's a donation sitting in the bank, waiting for them as soon as they give all Harvard workers (including casuals and contracted workers) a living wage! (feel free to elaborate).
4. If you are an alumnus/alumna, go [back] to the alumni page to find out how you can organize your class to participate in this action with you.
