I wonder if any of these instructors that are getting their hours cuts are liberals that supported ObamaCare.
Yes, I’d think it would be complicated. Full time faculty might be in the classroom maybe nine hours a week, but they are expected to keep office hours, and they are expected to do research, writing, course preparation, and so forth. So it would probably add up to a 40 hour week in practice.
Adjunct faculty are not considered full-time workers, so you would probably only count classroom hours and required office hours. In most cases that would come to fewer than 30 hours a week, although probably some junior colleges work them harder than that. But you’d need to establish whether, for instance, they should get paid for class preparation, and if so, how long that would be.
Research would not count. If they were writing articles or a book, it would be in hopes of getting a tenured position in the future—which would be full time.
I don’t get it. Why wouldn’t the academics that love Obama so and pushed hard for both his election and his agenda just pony up whatever it takes to cover their troops and soak the students and their parents for a few more bucks in tuition?
Or is that special favor only to be used against evil corporations?
The Academented voted for, and gave generously to, Obama.
Let them starve. They can always fight with the trolls for living space under the bridges.
Socialists want equal suffering? Well then, share the pain.
Every group that voted overwhelming for Obama deserves everything they get. Of course they are too stupid to figure it out.
What a bunch of hypocrites. The whole academic bunch voted for Obama; and now they don’t like what that means. Duh!
The IRS released new regulations last week to make it harder for employers to circumvent Obamacare and deny their employees heath insurance. One rule stipulates that employers could still fall under the mandate if they employ enough part-time workers to equal 50 full-time workers,
