  •  I never said we should tear down the pay and (0+ / 0-)

    security of others (show me where I say that or even imply it?).

    Many people with tenure share my critical point of view about it. This is not about me not having tenure, but rather what tenure means within a system of exclusion.

    Moreover, I have to point out that you are arguing to expand inequality in the workforce and feel it is justified due to "freedom." claims which are of a very dubious nature.

    My point is that I just wish 1) adjuncts were not so obviously excluded from this conversation (we are all in this together) 2) those with tenure would at the very least acknowledge it's obvious unfairness (as many do).

    Ultimately, the entire institution and profession is under attack by the right wing. we need to be together on this. Some acknowledgement that 1) adjuncts exist and 2) the system is arbitrary, unfair, and exclusionary. To ignore both of these things is just wrong.

      in the workplace--I am trying to eliminate it, or at least, severely reduce it.
