This is very disturbing. I hope Raging Chicken and the Vanguard are sent regularly to our state reps and senators. They likely know very little about how our colleges are turning professors into temps. Who the hell is going to want to become a college professor? The only difference between highly educated professors and the unskilled people one sees lined up every day at the temp agency (next door to the Reading Eagle building) hoping to get a daily work assignment, I suspect, is that the professors have a contract good for one semester. It is sad anyone has to line up and ask for a job assignment. Maybe that is why some find a life of crime is more appealing. This country is is very bad shape, thanks to the austerity crowd (primarily Republicans). Keynes must be turning over in his grave.
