Because Jesse Jackson was at my school recently, trying to help graduate students organize a union -- because their stipends are only about $20,000, on top of tuition remittance, plus a minimum of $9,000 per teaching assistantship, cheap healthcare, etc. etc. etc.

Wait, did he get arrested this time? He's always getting arrested in New Haven.....

For those who aren't familiar with the issues involved in this strike, the law says Yale doesn't have to let its graduate students unionize because they are at the core students, not employees. They get treated well as students who get the privilege to both learn and start teaching, like an apprenticeship.

That's Yale's side of the story. GESO's just greedy.
