Quote of the day.

“Consenting to seven to ten years in wage slavery as the necessary precondition for liberation is no longer rational if this simply precedes a still lower salary as an adjunct faculty member. The only thing the PhD now reliably confers is the potential for lifetime poverty and underemployment.”

Cary Nelson, “Don’t Mourn, Organize,” Academe, January-February, 2010.

Let’s not forget those of us who had to drop out BEFORE getting the Ph.D. yet with just as much debt and “time wasted” in wage slavery.
