Hungry Hungry Hypo(crites)
Eight members of the Yale University graduate student union Local 33 began an indefinite, collective fast in front of University President Peter Salovey’s home on Tuesday in an effort to persuade Yale to begin collective bargaining.
“Yale wants to make us wait and wait and wait … until we give up and go away. We have committed ourselves to waiting without eating.” Local 33 Chair Aaron Greenberg said at the rally in New Haven, Conn.
There was one small distinction with the hunger protest, however. Their pamphlet explained that the hunger strike was “symbolic” and participants could leave when they got hungry and could no longer continue. I understand that most added a Domino’s Pizza Delivery app to their phones, due to the company’s ’30 minutes or less’ promise. TALK ABOUT SACRIFICE !
This will look good on their “symbolic” resumes should they ever apply for a “symbolic” job .
Yeah, I know……..
BUT WAIT….IT GETS BETTER !
Members of the Yale College Republicans hosted a barbecue Friday right next to where members of the Local 33 graduate student union participated in the hunger strike .
The College Republicans served a meal of barbecued beef, baked beans and corn to those on the plaza, just a few feet from the tent Local 33 had erected to house hunger strikers .
Now THAT is what we send our kids to college for !
NEXT UP…PIG ROAST AT THE MUSLIM STUDENT CENTER PRAYER ROOM !
