🚨BREAKING🚨 Columbia announced it is changing the payment schedule for stipends. What does this mean for workers? Instead of a lump sum payment upfront, stipends will be paid out semi-monthly. Why is CU doing this? To make a strike more painful for workers.

Based on this timeline, people cannot afford to live in NYC for about two months if you factor in rent payments. We already couldn't afford to live on our wages before this change!!! https://t.co/VhxThsfCct
