No use whatsoever. This article from The Nation talks about how adjuncts at Loyola University in Chicago want a union, but realistically, if liberal institutions haven’t treated adjuncts well by now, they never will, and the administrators, together with support from tenured leftists, will thwart them. And even if they don’t, it shouldn’t take a union to get liberal institutions to pay people what they deserve.
The key points about the exploitation of adjuncts are:
1. The exploitation is happening in non-profits.
2. It is happening in liberal and leftist institutions.
3. Those institutions have acted just as callously as corporations have.
4. Tenured leftists have been almost completely indifferent to the plight of adjuncts.
As I’ve said on other occasions, the left is giving the right a great gift. Please use it!
