$18 to clean toilets? Sweet.


We just reported that Boots Riley has dropped out of a UC Berkeley graduation ceremony to show solidarity with the Cal custodians' union in their fight for higher pay. The Oakland Tribune reports that custodians make $12 an hour but want $18. Is that fair? How much should a toilet cleaner make? I know many writers making less than the janitors per hour. What do you make? And would you clean a pooper for a sweet $18? Are the janitors being unreasonable? It's not like education is getting any cheaper.
