Perhaps VT and NH gynofascists and their spineless higher ups should’ve paid more attention to
the plight of their workers and worried less about adjuncts breaking the silence.
The irony of the messages, the phone calls, all of it remains:
the people who consistently mug for the equity cameras and promise restitution
and attend academic conferences dedicated to the activist scholarly model
are scared to death people will learn of their complicity with the downsizing of American education.
We all lose when this happens.
Outsourcing and casino styled bankster capitalism is no longer reserved for the financial sector.
My friends are suffering.
I was suffering for a decade.
I made new choices and abandoned old ways of thinking about this problem.
If American higher education is going to help our nation recover from the Great Recession,
everyone will need to work together and end the central lie found in the failure of private and public
institutions to pay the wages earned by their part-time teachers.
Everything else can be negotiated.
Not paying us for our work?
That is non-negotiable.
