Railroads Offer College Snow Shovelers 99 Cents an Hour
Snow shovelers can get 99 cents an hour from the railroads, according to a plan now being worked out by the Student Employment Office.
The wage is 24 cents better than anything students have been able to get through the Office for similar work in the past, but the hours are not the best. The railroads do their shoveling whenever the snow falls, no matter what the hour.
Crews of ten men will be organized with a man who owns a telephone nominally at the head of each. When the call comes through for shovelers, the Employment Office will phone its squad captains, who will rout out their men, all of whom will be in neighboring entries.
