Happy Labor Day!

Our university’s top administrator informed us, 20 minutes before close of business on Friday, that he will give himself and other admins raises while faculty members will get nothing because we need to be punished for unionizing. He didn’t use these precise words but the implication was clear. 

Then he had the discussion board sabotaged to prevent us from discussing this.

Of course, we will get our raise, this idiot will apologize, professors will write him crappy evaluations, and the Board of Trustees will put him out on his ass. I’ve been here long enough to know how this works. 

What’s sad, though, is the plummeting quality of our administrators. They don’t come to us from business but I almost wish they did. At least then if they did evil things, I could be angry. But it’s impossible to be angry with this bumbling fool who just talked himself out of a career for some mysterious reason. 

We used to have inspiring, strong administrators. And now we get these mediocre, boring people who can’t even plot against labor in a half-assedly competent way. What a comedown.

One thought on “Happy Labor Day!

  1. So your university has gone the same route as all other industries—putting the substandard and mediocre in charge.
    (Try dealing with government agencies and insurance companies ….)
