The Weak Beat the Strong

A group of law students, waiters, and a law professor who teaches his students how to engage in social issues has forced a chain of cafes to hand tips over to the waiters, rather than pocketing them and doling out only leftovers. You'd have thought this would be so obvious - elementary decency, even - that it would be a non-issue, but it seems you'd be wrong.

I can't link to this because it's not in the papers. I learned it from a friend at one of our far-lefty human rights organizations, who has me on his mailing list for whatever reason. (So I can quote him approvingly in rare cases, I suppose). Anyway, the law professor is Itai Svirski of Tel Aviv University.
