Daily Caller: “Members of the Yale College Republicans hosted a barbecue Friday right next to where members of the Local 33 graduate student union participated in a hunger strike, the New Haven Register reports.
The College Republicans served a meal of barbecued beef, baked beans and corn to those on the plaza, just a few feet from the tent Local 33 had erected to house hunger strikers protesting the school’s decision not to negotiate a contract.”

The college republicans offered lunch to the hunger strikers.

“Local 33, the graduate student teachers’ union which is part of the international labor union UNITE HERE, is protesting the school’s decision not to negotiate a contract. Greenberg said the school is stalling until President Donald Trump appoints a new head of the National Labor Relations Board, someone who might be harsher to the union’s requests.””

Even though these students say they are on a hunger strike it’s only symbolic, they can eat! The strike is for a better deal but these doctoral students earn $30,000 along with full benefits which include room and board, health, and tuition.

How many people delivered pizzas to graduate?
