This post is a few years old, but its points out the importance of rhetoric, and is very current. As momentum builds for action on adjunct issues, we need to be careful what we ask for. We must define our language with precision. “Justice” is dollar parity. Equal pay is parity. This is justice. Aside from chairs, assistant chairs and a few program directors, tenured faculty at community colleges do not do more work than adjuncts. One I know teaches 17 hours a semester plus works much, much more for the general good. You want us to do work besides teach? Like what? Pay us equally, we’ll do it.
