    We just had a furlough (2% drop in salary) and a $1,500 increase in health insurance payments.

    Then our union sold us out. Only raises in the future come for promotions. Just swell, for the vast majority of us, we don't receive step promotions as staff do. We get one promotion in our lifetimes: tenure-track to tenure.

    All my colleagues are advising undergrads not to go on for graduate work, while internally we discuss what happens if we cut back on TAs, which is the ethical thing to do.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
