The Living Wage Campaign at the University of Virginia announced Thursday they have ended their hunger strike that demanded school administrators pay all employees a living wage. School administration committed to audit contractors, examine the university's labor practices, and to prioritize reviews for the lowest-paid employees.

"We have utter confidence that this action has laid the groundwork for an indexed living wage," a statement on the Living Wage Campaign's website read.
