Wednesday February 25 2015 is National Adjunct Walkout Day, a day of action to call attention to the labor conditions and unjust payscales of part time and non-tenure track faculty at universities and colleges. Please join part-time faculty and their allies for this day of action. Too often I hear TT faculty speak of "the adjunct problem." Adjuncts are not the problem: a system built around exploiting their labor and minimizing their voice is the problem.
