The Union of Teaching Faculty reports that Central Michigan University professors are now eligible for government assistance:
CMU has record assets and revenue, but is allocating money to top administrative salaries—some of those for a medical school that doesn’t even exist yet! –Instead of to the underpaid faculty and staff who make CMU work.
CMU’s nontenure-track faculty members are paid so poorly that some of them fall below the federal poverty line—even while working full-time. The University’s current pay proposal for full-time faculty would leave intact the possibility of their needing (and being eligible for) government assistance to get by.
Gutting services that actually SERVE the interests of the middle class is not "good business".
