ATLANTA (AP) -- Cafeteria workers at Morehouse College staged a
protest against Sodexo, the French-owned corporation that provides
food services on campus.

Dozens of workers took part in a rally Wednesday morning.

Workers and representatives of the Service Employees
International Union say they're protesting over wages and benefits,
including health care, as well as job security issues.

Sodexo issued a statement saying the company is widely
recognized for leadership and innovation in creating a positive
workplace environment, and that it offers a full range of
affordable benefits to hourly employees.
