I am an adjunct teacher - it sucks! Not only have I become the "go to guy" (not my term), and the resident freak (the only Marxist/post-positivist), I have NEVER in my adult life, been in worst debt. For instance, this and next month I will be scrambling to raise money for RENT!

If this continues for another six months, I will walk away from teaching and find a job - ANYWHERE, ANYTHING!!! 

Watch this space!!!

Adjunct Professors: Low Pay and Hard Going
By ROBBIE WOLIVER

THEY travel from place to place for work. They never know if they'll be 
wanted by those same places the following season. They rarely have 
health plans and their employment status is ceaselessly insecure. This 
summer, some might not have any work at all.

Migrant farm workers? No, adjunct college professors.
