Colorado Lawmakers Take Up Sweeping Overhaul of Adjucnt Working Conditions

We need this true pay equity in California. If I work a 60% assignment, why shouldn’t I receive 60% of a full-time salary? As it is, I receive about 30% of a full-time salary with the same degree and experience. How much is committee work worth? It seems to me that, even though it is necessary, committee work isn’t what is important in higher education.

  1. Excellent news, and a step in the right direction, although still a small so far. I really hope that this momentum spreads to other states. There seems to be a sort of lull in the Midwest and South are area with less equity, but my observations are completely unscientific. I know that California is kinder to adjuncts in some ways–unemployment, for example. I love imagining this sort of practice being extended to other states, but I am hesitant to get too excited.
