I have heard rumors that your company pays workers below the federal poverty line and also provides no health insurance. Can you please clarify whether this is so? My students have been asking, and I will be glad to share your answer with them.
Dr. Anthony Krupp
That's not right, Dr. Krupp. The amount we pay our workers varies from market to market -- we have more than 18,000 workers -- and even the average salaries at UofM is $2 above the federal minimum wage, and $1 more than the Florida minimum wage. That said, the current administration is now reviewing the wages and benefits packages offered to all contract workers at the campus and we expect a significant revision in the current status.

Dear Mr. Bailey, Dear Dr. Krupp
The following correspondence, between a punctilious academic and a hard-hitting corporate PR man, was recently discovered in our electronic attic. We publish it here for your enjoyment, along with some disucssion questions on this "84 Charing Cross Road"-like exchange.
