Defend Graduate Employees at Syracuse
To the Syracuse University community,

The Republican tax plan would be absolutely devastating for grad students. Categorizing tuition waivers as taxable income---while also ending many important tax waivers---is an attack on our livelihoods and an attack on the accessibility of higher education to low income students, women, LGBQT students, disabled students, international students, and students of color. Graduate students will be forced to take out loans to cover federal taxes, as our current stipends barely cover the cost of living. The passage of this bill will destroy our ability to survive, and we need immediate action from our university.

The University administration has issued a single email in regards to this bill that threatens the viability of graduate school for all students. While we welcome the Chancellor's criticism of the tax plan, the undersigned believe that just saying no is not enough.

We demand that the university immediately release contingency plans to address the massive impact this will have on the livelihood of graduate students. Such a plan could take many forms, for example:

- Elimination of tuition waivers and total reduction in tuition for grad students
- Compensation to stipends to account for higher tax bills
- Special tax grants that completely cover the new costs

We will be holding a rally on Wednesday November 29th at 12:15 at Hendrick's Chapel to further this call, and to add our voices to the thousands of other graduate students across the country fighting for their survival.

Please sign this petition to voice your support for a plan that addresses these grievances, and please send this petition to every member of the Syracuse Community.
