University workers deserve respect

Letter to the Editor | Wednesday, December 10, 2008

To the supporters of CLAP and others who seek better pay for University workers:

In honor of the holiday season, make an effort on an individual level to affect social change. Leave a small Christmas bonus for the housekeepers, dining hall workers and other University personnel.

Don’t complain to the administration on behalf of others if you are not willing to lead by example. People have the power to change the world one goodwill gesture at a time. Brighten someone’s Christmas this year (especially this tough year) by cracking your pocket book and being a Christmas angel.

To the Dining Hall staff,

I would like to thank you for the wonderful Christmas dinner served yesterday. The special dishes were all delicious and deserve proper recognition. The quality prime rib doused in Au Jus and juxtaposed with tangerine-topped salmon and delectable scalloped potatoes was a plate worthy of royalty.

I consumed the best mousse of my life last night and I want to thank the workers of the Dining Halls for their consistent performance in food quality especially in the desserts and baked goods department.

If only we could have these special dinners more often …
