Grinch Award Delivered at Benson Tower Sales Office

Saturday, April 29 - The Grinch Award was delivered today to a representative at the Benson Tower sales office. An action organized by SLAP, the Student Labor Action Project, included a rally, brief march, and the presentation of the coveted Grinch Award to the nice folks at the Benson Tower sales office!

The Grinch Award is awarded every year to someone who is determined to be the greediest around. Activists entered the sales office to present the award, but the security guard decided to call 911 (we overheard him saying "Hello? 911"). Someone decided that this was not an emergency, because the police never showed up.
