OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- Some Ole Miss student-workers want their money back.
They feel it's not safe and made a list of demands for the administration.
Student-workers stood in front of the Lyceum today to protest.
They stood in solidarity with the staff that is working during this pandemic.
Student-worker, Tex Boren, said they are asking the university to hear their demands.
One of those demands includes hazard pay for workers who are on campus.
Boren believes it's only a matter of time before a student or staff member dies from the virus.
Boren believes it is not safe for students to be on campus and that the university is not taking necessary precautions to keep students from transmitting COVID to others.
"This is a coffin to go without a graveyard theme. If we don't do anything, a lot of students might die. We already have 500 cases going up. That means at some point, if it hasn't already happened, students are going to die of COVID. Or at least take it back to their parents or their grandparents. They're going to end up passing away due to COVID. There have already been so many deaths in the U.S. because of it, but the chancellor and part of our government just don't want to listen," said Boren.
We've reached out to the chancellor's office however he was not available for comment at the time.
