Students and faculty are teaming up with the living wage campaign to sent a strong message to University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan. Supporters rallied and listed their demands in front of the president's office at Madison Hall on grounds Wednesday.

They want every UVA employee to have a wage of no less then $13 an hour. The petition handed to the president contains 325 UVA faculty signatures as well as a list of demands.

Emily Filler of the Living Wage Campaign says faculty support was important. "[They] have a good deal of moral and intellectual authority who can sometimes get things done when students can't," she said.

The campaign set a deadline for the administrators as well. They will have to respond by February 17 or the campaign will continue to take action.
