In the spirit of Halloween, members of Rutgers University United Students Against Sweatshops on Monday stormed President Richard McCormick’s office dressed as pirates, chanting: “They swab the deck, so where’s their booty?”

Rutgers University faculty and staff agreed three years ago to put off their wage increases for a year in good faith and in the spirit of shared sacrifice as top administrators continued to get huge wages, increases, benefits and severance packages, said Molly Magier of Rutgers USAS.
