The New York Times reports that the campus-based anti-sweatshop movement has persuaded one of the country’s leading sportswear companies, Russell Athletic, to agree to rehire 1,200 workers in Honduras who lost their jobs when Russell closed their factory soon after the workers had unionized.
So it seems that sometimes the good guys do win. And that today’s college students can get it together to protest about something other than alcohol restrictions. And speaking of which, the Times also reports that some colleges, including the University of Minnesota, are starting to bar from football games students who’ve failed breathalyzer tests.
Uh-oh. Better beef up campus security: this will not stand!
