    I adjuncted for a year, managed to land a 1-yr VAP for another year, and by luck and fortunate timing, managed to get on the tenure track.

    I recognize how fortunate and lucky I am.

    And I can look around my university, which is not by any means a gratuitous example, and I see the reliance on casual labor that keep the university running.

    Alas, being in the South, unions don't really exist.
