Illiniois GAs demand a living wage

Full story here

I hope they succeed in getting their demands met. It shouldn't be considered so radical for grad students to get paid enough to live on--it should be the standard everywhere. Grad students at Illinois were responsible for the majority of my undergrad education and they deserve to be adequately paid for their work. It's ridiculous how much undergrads pay for tuition (even in-state tuition) given how little of that money actually goes toward their "education."

Now if perhaps GESO at OSU could follow suite in making such demands... I would greatly appreciate it.
