This will accelerate another “interesting demand & problem” for universities!
There is a creeping movement for grad students to unionize and demand union scale wages (What that might be for an English major I haven’t a clue!) Some of the same arguments can be made for both athletes & grad students. Both work for longer then the 8 hour day. Its claimed for both its part of the “education process”. Both are “exploited” by their “upper management” successful coaches get multimillionaire salaries plus benefits, hot shot profs do quite well extra bennies & perks, of course not as well as coaches but far far better then grad students.
Its going to be interesting to see how all this “demand for fairness” plays out!
