Snowflake Hunger Strikes Include Refreshment Breaks

A group of Yale University graduate students announced Tuesday evening that they would be undertaking a hunger strike to pressure the administration into granting them better union benefits.

Yale doctoral students currently earn a stipend $30,000 a year, receive free health care, and have their $40,000 tuition paid in full, according to Yale News.

The committed students take periodic breaks from the hunger strike for refreshment.
