PALO ALTO – Stanford University officials agreed to pay its “living wage” to all contract workers, ending a nine-day hunger strike by some student protesters. Officials on Friday revised the school’s policy to include all employees hired through contractors. Loopholes in the wage policies previously allowed the university to pay less than the “living wage” – $11.15 to $12.59 per hour – to contracted employees who work less than 30 hours per week. Protesters with the Stanford Labor Action Coalition celebrated with food and music at their 10-tent encampment in the campus’ White Plaza after Friday’s meeting announcing the changes. last_img
