Value the people who do the most important work here--the teachers. If you pay a reasonable wage, you will get better teachers. We are professionals, but we are not really treated as such.
Last year, all full time staff (secretaries, etc.) got a $500 bonus because of the college's success. Adjuncts got just a $50 bonus--even though we do the bulk of the teaching, the primary purpose of this institution, and even though many of us work almost full time for very low wages. That minuscule "bonus" was like a slap in the face.

Teach a course for the first time is preparation-intensive. You are supposed to devote 2 hours of prep to each hour of class, but I spent much more than that.

Unreliable and sometimes excessive for the pay

Pay the adjuncts a wage that corresponds %-wise to what full-time faculty get for the same time period. Full-time faculty teach only four courses. If we adjuncts teach just 3 courses per semester, we usually gross less than $9,000 that semester. We should get 3/4 of the full-time faculty pay for that time period. After all, you don't give us health insurance or vacation.
We are supposed to be communicating to our students that getting a college degree is worth the time and effort. How ironic is that, given our level of pay with a master's degree?
