I teach six college courses a year and make less than 20k. IamAn Adjunct. AMA!
In response to this popular post, I am doing this AMA about college adjunct labor. As I say in my title, I taught six course sections over this past school year--five different courses in all--and made less than $20,000.
Proof has been sent to the mods.
Edit: OK, this has been fun and garnered much more attention than I could have ever imagined, but I've got to get to bed. So it's goodbye for now. Thanks for the discussion!
