Open Letter to the Precarious Faculty (Basta!)

In response to yet another swipe at Lee Kottner’s petition which I supported and signed on behalf of families, students, and adjunct colleagues.

Here’s the Precarious Faculty blog entry by Ana Maria Fores

Dear Ana and Vanessa,

For six or so months I’ve watched you and Vanessa try to undermine the efforts of other adjunct activist groups. Enough already. Basta!

It’s simply, Ana (and Vanessa).

We sign each other’s petitions; we contact each other’s contacts; we build this movement for the people who are suffering in Adjunct hell.

That’s it; nothing more.
Nothing less.

And if you can’t do that, I don’t understand why you even bother to make the effort because this ISN’T about YOU or ME or anyone else. This is about people right now who have no money to pay their bills or repay their loans who are looking at a a declining number of positions even in the neoliberal corporate paradise called the at-will job market.

FFS —┬ábasta! (Enough . . .)


Let’s sign (if you haven’t) and promote Ana’s petition!
