Where There is a Will...There Will Be a Living Wage



WATCH HERE - must have Realplayer

The documentary Where There is a Will… There Will be a Living Wage captures the real life stories of full-time employees at one of our nation’s wealthiest universities, Texas A&M University, located in College Station, Texas. It is where 27% of its citizens live below the poverty guideline and where officials pay starting wages equal to poverty level and below. These are the people who perform labor essential to American’s finest universities and colleges. They are black and white, Latino and Asian. They pick up after us, maintain the grounds, prepare our food, wax our floors, empty our wastebaskets, scrub our toilets, and clean our classrooms. They are the ones we pass everyday in the hallways and on the sidewalks, not realizing that many of them have been at work since 4:00 a.m. to finish one full-time job before going on to a second, just so they can afford the basics.


Where There is a Will...There Will Be a Living Wage
Producer: Patrick Phillips
Length: 27m 31s
