"BSA's deserve a living wage, they deserve an Essential Worker Bonus, and they deserve those because, according to the director of Risk Management and Mental Health, we have the most dangerous job on campus." -Joshua Gringras

At Denison University, President Adam Weinberg makes $450,000 a year plus another $50,000 for a good job. Denison BSAs, or Building Service Associates, only make $12.50 to start. For context, part-time student workers start at $9.50. Not to mention the fact that their jobs are not limited to janitorial duties; they are often miscellaneous labor in order to save costs for the university for the same wages.

We demand Adam Weinberg as well as the Board of Trustees to:

-Increase their wages to a liveable one (increased with productivity it should be $24 an hour at least).

-Limit their jobs to only janitorial work and if they are required for other jobs to pay them as much as they would a specialized laborer

-Give better working conditions and standards

-Allow breaks to be taken when needed

-Make the job description straightforward (no manipulation)
