ADJUNCT 'PROFESSOR' $120,000 AVG. $20,000 AVG. WITH 140,000 DOCTORATES AWARDED LAST YEAR AND ONLY 16,000 NEW PROFESSORSHIP ONLY ONE OUT OF TEN PHD'S GET THE OPENINGS LISTED, ADJUNCT POSITIONS HAVE JOB THEY STUDIED 8.2 YEARS ON AVG. FOR SWOLLEN TO A RECORD-HIGH 76% OF COLLEGE FACULTIES. YOUR CHANCES YOUR CHANCES BY YOUR WAGES SUBJECT HAVE DECLINED POLITICAL SCIENCE -39% SOCIOLOGY -35% МАТH -40% ENGLISH -41.4% HAVE DECLINED FROM S53 AN HOUR TO AN AVG OF $8.90 AN HOUR [FOR 20K/56/40 AND 120K/56/40] AND THAT'S THE BEST POSSIBLE SCENARIO. IN 5 ADJUNCTS MAKING LESS THAN $20K YEARLY. WITH THE CRISIS PROBABLE ADJUNCT X3 EXPERIENCE TEACHING TwO CLASSES $900 A MONTH THIS HAS LED TO THE NUMBER OF MASTERS AND PHD HOLDERS ON FOOD STAMPS TRIPLING IN THREE YEARS. RISING TO 360,000 MASTERS HOLDERS RENT $750 A MONTH AND 30,000 PHD HOLDERS GAS $35 A WEEK (YOU LIVE AWAY FROM CAMPUS WHERE HOUSING IN CHEAPER) = $10 AND FOOD STAMPS ADJUNCT VS. SECRETARY NO JOB SECURITY VS. GREAT JOB SECURITY ADJUNCTS MAKE 50% LESS THAN SECRETARIES, BUT $45K IN DEBT VS. DIDN'T NEED TO PAYA CENT NO INSURANCE VS. FULL BENEFITS PENDING LOSS OF HOURS vs. 40 HOURS A WEEK IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT THE FROM THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT MONEY. IT'S ALSO ABOUT (FINES EMPLOYERS WITH 50+ PART TIME QUALITY OF LIFE. EMPLOYEES WORKING OVER 30 HOURS] WHY DO THEY DO IT? I SUNK COSTS: INVOLVES THE I FOOT IN THE DOOR TECHNIQUE: TACTIC INCREASED INVESTMENT (TIME, MONEY, FUTURE) IN A PATH THAT IS NOT INVOLVING GETTING ONE TO LUCRATIVE JUST BECAUSE ONE HAS AGREE TO A LARGE REQUEST PREVIOUSLY INVESTED IN THE PATH. BY FIRST MAKING A SMALLER RELATED REQUEST. DETERMINANTS WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? 1 SOCIAL (PEER PRESSURE) I PSYCHOLOGICAL (GAMBLING) I PROJECT (PAST COMMITMENT) (BIGGER PICTURE) ADJUNCTS ARE KEEPING THE I STRUCTURAL (CULTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS) SYSTEM AFLOAT, AND WORK IN INDENTURED SERVITUDE STATES ARE SPENDING $16 BILLION LESS oN PUBLIC COLLEGES THAN IN 2008. THAT'S $2,353 LESS PER STUDENT. THE BIG, BAD PICTURE FLAGSHIP UNIVERSITY SYSTEMS LIKE CALIFORNIA ARE REDUCING FUNDING BY 29.3% LEADING TO (IN CA) 4,200 FIRED STAFF MEMBERS 1 9,500 POSITIONS UNFILLED I AND THE ELIMINATION OF 180 PROoGRAMS AND THAT'S ONLY POSSIBLE BECAUSE THEY'RE CHARGING 70% MORE IN TUITION \ WHILE UNDERGRADUTE MATRICULATION HAS SKYROCKETED. LEAVING ADJUNCTS WITH HARDER JOBS THAN THE TENURE TRACK POSITIONS THEY DREAMT OF IN GRAD SCHOOL. THERE ARE 5.7 MILLION MORE COLLEGE STUDENTS THAN THERE WERE 10 YEARS AGO. A 45% INCREASE IN FULL TIME STUDENTS. WHILE TENURE TRACK POSITIONS HAVE ONLY INCREASED 28% IN 32 YEARS. (FROM 1975-2007) MATRICULATION AND TUITION ARE ON THE RISE.
