I’m stumped that an adjunct faculty member at CUNY, Karen Gregory, has decided to tell her students not to call her “professor” as her way of protesting her adjunct status. She’s not tenured, full-time faculty. Granted, she is teaching a Labor Studies course, which makes labor issues relevant to her students, but I find it unprofessional that she would use her students to try and improve her personal employment status. If she is so unhappy and feels abused, then why did Gregory accept the job? When a willing buyer meets a willing seller, there is a meeting of the minds and a contract is realized and/or a transaction takes place. This is the case whether you’re looking to buy a care or looking for a job.
