Last semester, a total of 68 students from YSoA, Harvard GSD, and Columbia GSAPP signed The Pledge, which is an agreement developed by The Architecture Lobby, asking students to uphold the value of architectural labor when seeking a job. The three points of the pledge are as follows:
- Refuse unpaid internships.
- Negotiate your employment contract- ask for overtime pay, a living income, and a healthcare subsidy.
- Be ready to walk away.
If you’re interested in signing the pledge, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
