"The problem adjuncts face is not that their struggle for fair wages, job security, and basic human freedoms is fundamentally different from other workers’ struggles. The problem is that the struggles are essentially the same, but academics keep insisting on a distinction that doesn’t exist, so they don’t take advantage of opportunities to forge solidarity coalitions with those who occupy precarious and exploited positions in other sectors of the economy.

"Until privileged members of the academic club learn this, and start to believe it, they can’t make a persuasive argument to anyone who isn’t already invested in the notion that college faculty are a unique species. Put simply, academics have to stop pretending that they have special grievances all their own. This means faculty don’t have to start “telling parents, students, administrators, and legislators that they have to fight for the right of professors,” as Bérubé states. It means we have to start declaring, loudly and with conviction, what’s really true, which is that we are them and they are us."
