What "Student Unity"?

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (Reuters) - A Harvard University student's fledgling dorm-cleaning business faced the threat of a campus boycott on Thursday after the school's daily newspaper slammed it for dividing students along economic lines.

The Harvard Crimson newspaper urged students to shun Dormaid, a business launched by Harvard sophomore Michael Kopko that cleans up for messy students.

"By creating yet another differential between the haves and have-nots on campus, Dormaid threatens our student unity," the Crimson said in an editorial....

Student Unity? When have students even been close to unity over anything other than sports and binge drinking?

You'd think cleaning rooms would spread unity...:) Because they would be more willing to hang out in a clean room, instead of a dirty one.

unless of course the cleaning service hires illegal immigrants to do the labor...then that could be a problem.

It seems to me that Harvard has no capitalist spirit, either. But that's not surprising.
