2015 High Roader Kyle Friend `17 had this letter to the editor published in the Buffalo News urging a living wage for workers in low-wage occupations across New York.

“Cornell University’s High Road Fellowship program – and my year as a worker in the fast food industry – have both allowed me to see how income inequality entrenches itself in the day-to-day lives of ordinary, hardworking people – people who are not paid a fair wage for their labor.”
