• Allow Tip Jars In Jimmy John's Stores
    In-shoppers rely on a modest hourly wage, and at this point in time, corporate policy prohibits the placing of a tip jar at registers. The hourly wage currently at Miklin Enterprises is $9.00, the minimum wage in the state of Minnesota, and it similar at Jimmy John's franchises across the U.S. $9.00 does not even cover a full meal at Jimmy John's; considering the costs of housing, food, childcare, education, etc, and the fact that many in-shop employees are single parents, college students, and people working multiple jobs, $9.00 per hour is simply not enough to create a decent living. If Miklin and other Jimmy John's franchises are not willing at this point to increase their employee's wages, the very least they can do is allow them to take in a modest increase in income through voluntary tips by in-shop customers. Outright prohibiting employees to utilize a tip jar is a blatant disrespect to these workers.

  • Make "tip pay" illegal
    This is important because I cannot afford to buy food, have a cellphone, have electricity, or have running water. I don't have cable or internet, I literally have the bare necessities and I still cannot afford to be alive if it wasn't for the stipend I get from my university.

  • Point Park University Students Support the Adjuncts Right to Unionize!
    Despite rising tuition costs, the majority of faculty continue to be underpaid, underrepresented, and lack any type of job security. At Point Park, we pay between $24,000 and $30,000 a year in tuition. Our adjunct professors on the other hand, receive $2,100 to $2,200 per course with NO benefits and no guarantee of future employment. As students we must ask ourselves where does the money go? If not to those working day-in and day-out to impart us with the necessary skills for our futures then where? 78% of our professors are adjuncts. An increased use of adjuncts lowers graduation rates. This is only because they are not receiving the benefits and compensation they deserve. By giving our adjuncts space on campus, bettering adjunct working conditions, increasing adjunct pay this can be remedied. This would free up adjunct schedules allowing more time for them to focus on a reasonable number of students, and provide the quality education they strive to give. Graduation rates would rise as students would be granted much needed one on one time to work with their professors. In respect to the treatment of our professors the University is not looking out for the students. By withholding from our professors the fair treatment, job security, proper benefits, and proper pay that they deserve not only are our chances of success during college hampered, but our futures as well. They are ignoring student needs and completely disregarding the values in which they espouse. [1] Point Park University. "Tuition."
