interview with three student worker leaders

Will Garrahan, Ella Meloy and Elizabeth White, members of the organizing committee of the University of Oregon Student Workers Union, explain how  3,000 student undergraduate workers, from dining hall workers, to tutors, daycare workers, resident assistants and students in other jobs on the Eugene campus have come together to improve their wages, hours and working conditions, as well as bargain for their rights as students.  Inspired by the upsurge of young worker organizing across the country, the UOSW union is the first such union in Oregon and may be the largest in the country.
