Academia’s Indentured Servants




Most adjuncts teach at multiple universities while still not making enough to stay above the poverty line.

"On April 8, 2013, the  New York Times reported that 76 percent of American university faculty are adjunct professors - an all-time high. Unlike tenured faculty, whose annual salaries can top $160,000, adjunct professors make an average of $2,700 per course and receive no health care or other benefits.”
