Right. Got it. Thanks.


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.

    Robert. There is typo in your above graphic. “…your CV…”

    -katy at K?O.K. Conssulting

    P.S. just emailed you an invoice for my consulting fees. i HOPE you have change for a dollar. 😉

    P.S.S. just semi-intentionally left a typo in the spelling of my firm. if i had not pointed it out, would that be a typo in the style of a photobomb? a typobomb?

  2. ♡ the graphic… even for those not talking to FN or thinking about it ~ not yet that is ~ still ought to get it.

    Other closing lines…
    Don’t talk to anyone
    Don’t talk to anyone but us
    Don’t talk to anyone unless we say OK

    Is there a list of places not to talk to?

    • Hack that post, Vanessa.
      Make your own meme. 🙂 🙂 🙂

      I love how higher education magazines and newspapers think they own this story. I’m amused to death by their arrogance. They play party line politics with the colleges and universities perpetuating the lies about our work, our contributions, and our needs and then have the audacity to attack anyone who doesn’t say “how high” when they say “jump.”

      • I noticed the email address for a media consultant. That might freak some as much as talking to infamous Faux News (as for how it differs from NYT or WaPo, I would refer questioners to GBS’s famous exchange with actress Ellen Terry).

        Are those now interested editors the same previously ignored and did not return messages? Best entertainment I’ve had in a while

      • KOK is a good friend, graduate school colleague, and one of the best people in the business for helping me handle the traffic. If someone is “freaked” by a publicist, they should probably stay away from this arena. All is well. And, I don’t want to give out my email address to everyone. Spam. Spam. Spam. Spam. Sing along with me now. Spam. Spam. Spam. Spam.

      • I for one am relieved that you have help there running interference. Got it. No email. Won’t even refer to you by name. MI is fine. Want to know more? Read the blog.

        Alex posted on Con Job FB page. I should remember share/repost there to have more than just the one source. Maybe set a few alerts to track reactions

    • Memo from Higher Education to Whiny Adjunct Ingrates:

      Stop talking.
      You are making us look bad.
      We gave you a key chain.
      What more do’ya’friggin’want’from’us?!
