Tales from adjuncting

I’m a college or what Americans call a community college adjunct.

At the meeting there was discussion that the university might want us to have some graduate students as TAs. I was strongly opposed, because I don’t want a TA that makes 2x -4x as much as me. I was assured the only reason they make more is because of grants, but fuck that I don’t want my underling making more than me.


I make 1800 to 2600 per 1 semester class. (Prep, marking, lecturing,)

TA makes over 6k for helping one class.

I hate my life sometimes.

So adjuncts, how much bitterness have they weaved into you?
