Mr. Skinner opens by posing the problem of an unequal distribution of student labor on campus. He says that, even though the demand for labor has increased, the supply has decreased with the closure of two dorms and lays out the statistics for this fact. The shortage in student workers has forced the foreman running their work with half the number of laborers. School events and socials, which the department would see denying the students attendance unreasonable, further decrease their numbers, especially since they are not informed when students are involved in such events. He asks that this issues be addressed and that some manner of consistency be reached in student scheduling.
