Together

As I mentioned before, our Chancellor is trying to give himself a raise while denying a puny little cost of living increase to everybody who is not an administrator or with the School of Pharmacy.

It’s during times like these that one realizes how good it is to be part of a union. I don’t feel in the least stressed because I know I’m not alone. There are many people who are working together to defeat the Trump-like little tyrant who is our top administrator. I do my small part and rely on others to do the rest. We are all in the same boat, nobody is isolated or left struggling in misery while everybody else pretends it’s not happening (like when people started to be kicked out by their doctors one by one and there was no union yet to stand in solidarity.)

Look at what’s happening in Florida. People need people. The neoliberal mentality of isolation and competitiveness as the highest forms of existence is defective. It’s downright dangerous at times.
