  • SLAM and the Security guards contract

    This should bring up some questions as the Security at Harvard are negotiating a
    contract with there contract employer Allied Barton. As often happens on a college campus the activist students are getting involved. They are putting pressure on Harvard to intervine and apply pressure to Allied. Should the students keep out of the players internal affairs? Keep in mind grauation is very soon and most of the students will be gone for good.

    I believe the students have every right to voice their views, concerns and suggestions. I am not sure they should control things, necessarily, but their input needs to be taken into account.

      They voice their concerns where I work, but we are also a very liberal college.

        Whoa, wait a minute... Did I read that article right? College students... SUPPORTING security Officers?!?!

        Hang on... Somebody jumpstart my heart for me!

        On one hand, it seems really odd that they're trying to apply this kind of pressure, but then again, obviously these guys must be doing one hell of a job if the students are standing up on their behalf like this. Kudos to them! We'll see if it turns out to be enough, though..

          I used to work for Allied Barton. I thought they were a fair company that had competitive wages and benefits here in California.

            When I interviewed at a local college for work as a security supervisor, the interview was open to interested students who took most of the time asking questions that seemed designed to trap me into admitting I was racist...

            Things like "If you see two black males raping a white student, would you intervene?"

            "Yes, of course"

            "Does it matter if they were black?"

            "No"

            "Then why were so emphatic in your answer?"

            "I was answering the question"

            "You answered too quickly, without seeming to think about it."

            "!"

              If they want to play word games, then you have to shut them down. Any time an "interview" becomes a public speaking engagement against political activists, the rules for public speaking (never lose control, neutralize hecklers without ad hominem attacks, etc) must be used quickly.

                I must admit, it was one of the only interviews that I ended.

                  I think that I would of ended it myself. Interviews are not trials by political activists who do not pay your salary.
