This week I talk to Alan Trevithick about the plight of adjunct labor in higher education in the United States. We discuss the genesis of the crisis, the state of labor in higher ed today, adjunct unions, and one possible solution to the problem: National Adjunct Walkout Day (NAWD), planned for Feb 25, 2015.
