Actor Ben Stiller took time out from shooting a movie in Cambridge to support Harvard’s striking dining hall workers. Pictures are surfacing on Twitter of the “Something About Mary” star holding a “Support the Strike” sign while on a break from filming in Harvard Square. (Senator Elizabeth Warren, who taught at Harvard Law School before being elected to Congress, also has stopped by to support the cafeteria workers.) Local 26, which represents the 750 workers, wants an increase in the annual minimum pay from $30,000 to $35,000, and no increase in health care premiums. Stiller is in town shooting “Brad’s Status.”
