Colouful speech bubblesThis is the transcript from #AdjunctChat on 6/3/14 that was facilitated by Bri O’Blivion @whowewilltobe.

The topic was:  “Adjuncts on the Dole: Eliminating the Shame of Applying for Public Assistance.”

All are welcome to our next #AdjunctChat on Tuesday, June 10 (4:00pm EDT). We are still working out the topic, so come along for what will undoubtedly be something that will create meaning, share experiences, and offer resources, together!

@Comprof1 @GracieG @whowewilltobe My family and I know that summer is a bit tight financially. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:05
@whowewilltobe Let’s see who’s in our ranks today. Intros/locales/initial thoughts on being on the dole? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:06
@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe Today’s #AdjunctChat topic is interesting; can you mention a bit of how you came up with it as we get started? 6/3/14 16:06
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe The semesters when my courses are cut are the most difficult. But I don’t qualify for unemployment. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:06
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @GracieG That’s always my time to. I pay rent with a tax return, and then nothing. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:06

@GracieG @whowewilltobe I’m here in Western PA. I feel horrible having to apply for assistance but I hate the run-around I get more. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:07
@JeffreyKeefer For those who may be wondering about “on the dole” http://t.co/tzzFatbGDO #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:08
@GracieG @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Yes, and I may have lost my tax returns to the student loan debt machine #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:08
@GracieG @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Yes, and I may have lost my tax returns to the student loan debt machine #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:08
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe I’m in NY state. I’m never really sure of the unemployment laws. Only had it once when working on dev project #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:08
@JeffreyKeefer @GracieG Welcome to #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:08
@whowewilltobe @GracieG What’s it like in PA? How are they giving you the run around? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe Great #AdjunctChat topic today; nothing like pushing boundaries by bringing things into the light 6/3/14 16:09
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe Project ended in April so too late to get adj job or other research job. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 How often are your course cut? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:09
@GracieG @whowewilltobe PA didn’t expand low income programs b/c politics. Then I get different answers each time I talk or tho 1/2 #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:10

@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Before it was not too often. Now new rules in dept. So down to 1 course. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:10
@GracieG @whowewilltobe I’m unemployed my last checks block help til we’re in trouble. 2/2 #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:10
@whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 The indentured servitude machine. Many metaphors, but the real problem is the lack of food in my fridge. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:10
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe But now I think there’s a limit for life for assistance, isn’t there? #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:11
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 How do you get by in the summers? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:11
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile Welcome to #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:11
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Meaning teaching one course per semester? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:12
@chicorgi RT @Stella_Rouse: I laughed, but it was a sad laugh. @NewFacMajority @AdjunctYoda #adjunctchat https://t.co/Uv3Ftry7Td 6/3/14 16:12
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Not when we’re functioning within a system that needs to become more equalized. #AdjunctChat What do you think? 6/3/14 16:12
@GracieG @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Exactly. Those corps don’t care if people go hungry. Oh, you have a few bucks? We’ll take it. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:12
@whowewilltobe @GracieG Trouble’s coming here soon, too. In two weeks, unless the DHS approves our food stamp application quickly. #AdjunctChat 1/1 6/3/14 16:13
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Meaning I think I’m only guaranteed one course in fall, but I think contract says one course per sem 2/yr. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:13
@whowewilltobe @GracieG We’re down to our last $500. Tell me how this is equal pay for equal work. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:13
@whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 We should establish food banks in the #badmin offices. Agit prop theater. Creative resistance. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:14
@GracieG @whowewilltobe IF I get unemployment or state insurance for myself, that overrides the orig thing & we will get some food help #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:15
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe Between my husband and I, we sock away money to last the yr. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:15
@whowewilltobe @GracieG And if not? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:15

@GracieG @whowewilltobe I’ll sell whatever made it through last summer that’s still worth $$$ #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:16
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe We are probably in diff circumstances than some of you as we are older and I take on PT jobs when can’t get adj #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:16
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 I’m a single mother, so saving is very difficult. Impossible, really. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:16
@VCVaile try to take someone who works for state or county gov’t with you when you go for the runaround interview #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:17

@JeffreyKeefer How many of those in today’s #AdjunctChat teach FT as adjuncts? 6/3/14 16:17
@GracieG @Comprof1 @whowewilltobe That’s great you have a partner who can help do that. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:17

@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @whowewilltobe I also work FT outside adjunct work, as the latter would never pay the bills #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:18
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 I’d say so. It’s very hard for those of us trying to begin. Many of us can’t buy houses or benefits for ourselves. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:18
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Well, if you add all my classes from both schools last year, I was FT. I’m not for fall though. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:18

@whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Last semester I made $512 every 2 weeks. Taking on a part-time job is impossible. #AdjunctChat 1/2 6/3/14 16:20
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer I was FT w/good pay & benefits til last year. It’s more common in the city than out here where I am #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:20
@JeffreyKeefer Thinking about Q1, I wonder how common state support is amongst adjuncts. Wonder if there are any stats? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:20
@Comprof1 @GracieG @whowewilltobe Definitely. When we started our family we qualified for food stamps, but fortunately did not have debt. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:20
@whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I pay the sitter more than I would make. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:20
@VCVaile someone posted a summer jobs for teachers link on #edchat this morning. adjuncting was one suggestion #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:21
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Among other reasons. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:21
@GracieG @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Amen to that…. Not exactly single but partner has PTSD and that’s a whole other complication #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:22
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @GracieG I’m also one of the lucky ones. My schooling is paid, as it was only $3K per year 15 years ago. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:22
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Do you have people at your college that can help? We are do more & more for colleagues #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:22
@fabianbanga RT @whowewilltobe: @GracieG @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer I pay the sitter more than I would make. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:22
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer I hate to admit that my first reaction was laughter. But no, absolutely nobody at my school. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:23

@GracieG @Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer Virginia, what wonderful world is it that you’re from? My schools could care less! #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:23
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer The SAT/GMAT was online. She used to do it at night when her kids were in bed. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:23
@whowewilltobe In the activist circuit, however, we have many allies who look out for each other. #AdjunctChat @Comprof1 @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer 6/3/14 16:24
@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 Ouch; seems adjuncts may be in the wrong business if the pay is so little #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:24

@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @GracieG Can you talk more about this? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:25
@Comprof1 @GracieG @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer It varies from college and dept. Not admin but other faculty/adjuncts. Sharing babysittg #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:25

@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe Can you talk about how you see others who experienced this, such as why or how people work through it? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:26
@whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @GracieG The principle of #MutualAid. Send an ally a coat. Let her rant. Classic organizing tactic. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:27
@Comprof1 @GracieG @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer Also sharing survival tips/pt jobs to make ends meet. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:27
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @Comprof1 Well, yeah. We are. Most not here by choice and trying hard to get out. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @GracieG @whowewilltobe Seems like a situation where a timebank may be useful #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:28
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer We have an ally who’s a post-ac specialist who gives us tips. Building relationships is key. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:28
@Comprof1 @GracieG @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer We also would share consulting prospects, try to problem solve (housing, expenses) #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:28
@GracieG @VCVaile Anyone who recommends adjuncting ought to be summarily lashed #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:28
@VCVaile @JeffreyKeefer what do you have in mind for a time bank? #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:29
@whowewilltobe @Comprof1 @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer We’ve found that emotional support & love are very healing. The problem is systemic, common. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:29
@VCVaile @GracieG so right. the other suggestions were not gr8 but none worse than that #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:29
@GracieG @VCVaile @JeffreyKeefer Yes, explain, please!!! #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:29
@Comprof1 @whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Ok so if you lose me it’s because we’re in the middle of a bad storm/heavy winds! #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:30
@VCVaile when in doubt, google, http://t.co/Kg0CdhV4oW #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:31
@whowewilltobe Q2: Tell us about your experiences during application (or deciding if this is the route for you). #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:31
@whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer We’re not even noticed. The director of my program walked by me today as if I were a ghost. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:32

@VCVaile application = paperwork, waiting, runaround/brush-off interviews #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:33
@whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer When they find out I’m a “professor,” they shake their heads & tell me how their nieces pay outrageous tuition. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:34
@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 I wonder if that is common (not intentional, but still common)? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:34
@VCVaile @JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @GracieG @Comprof1 quite common, I’d say #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:35
@GracieG @whowewilltobe FT hrs cut (surprise!), got more 60+ miles away. Ppl who hired me on the spot apologized for awful pay there #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:35
@whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer @GracieG @Comprof1 Very common. When we leave, even after 10 years of service, we rarely get a goodbye. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:35
@GracieG @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer Same reaction I got from the assistance ppl. Then they look all sorry for me & I almost throw up #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:37
@whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer I wonder just how oblivious many TT faculty, staff, #badmin are. What if they couldn’t help but see? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:38
@whowewilltobe #AdjunctChat Time to dissolve the boundary separating the contingents from the TT. This second-class citizen status has run its course. 6/3/14 16:44

@whowewilltobe @VCVaile @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Guess we’ll just have to stand right in front of their tunnel vision so they have to look. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:45
@GracieG @VCVaile @whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer I have to wonder anymore if it’s just not apathy. They think they’re safe…. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:45
@fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer my exp is that most TT dont even think about this. they r in a gradsch set mentality #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:46
@whowewilltobe @VCVaile @JeffreyKeefer But they’re not, as you wrote, @GracieG: http://t.co/2gGmp8BGC6 #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:46
@whowewilltobe @fabianbanga @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Or they entered academia at a very different time and don’t think to stay up to date. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:47
@VCVaile @whowewilltobe @fabianbanga @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer that is irresponsible #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:48
@fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer what I saw in Europe and Lat America is different, recognition of the labor reality #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:48
@fabianbanga @VCVaile it is.

@whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat

6/3/14 16:49
@VCVaile @fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer that is still denial ~ no excuse #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:49
@GracieG @whowewilltobe @fabianbanga @JeffreyKeefer Exactly. I still get the “Don’t worry, good ppl get good jobs” line from older TT #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:50
@whowewilltobe @VCVaile @fabianbanga @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer And you can’t do that if you’re not involved in your own community. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:50
@whowewilltobe @VCVaile @fabianbanga @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer Time for TT and #badmin to listen up and listen well. It’s up to us to make them. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:51
@fabianbanga @VCVaile we need a class in gradschool in this topic > “solidarity” #adjunctchat
@whowewilltobe @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer
6/3/14 16:51
@whowewilltobe @fabianbanga @VCVaile @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer We need an entirely new platform. To whittle away the fat. Leave accreditation. #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:52
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile @fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @GracieG I am not sure if it is denial or people just are not aware #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:52
@lindathestar #AdjunctChat Hello from Australia. I’ve juggled adjunct/casual work with the dole for some time. The system works against helpfulness 6/3/14 16:52
@VCVaile @whowewilltobe @fabianbanga @GracieG @JeffreyKeefer to be involved means they have to see all as one community #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile @fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @GracieG I do not even see other adjuncts in my dept, so no sense what struggles are there #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:53
@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile @fabianbanga @whowewilltobe A lot of people cannot be bothered to care or to find out. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:53
@lindathestar #AdjunctChat … In that by end of semester when income ending the $ earned from marking pushes you off the dole. Nothing for 3 mo then 6/3/14 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer @whowewilltobe @VCVaile @fabianbanga @GracieG Perhaps include adjuncts in this; many I know in applied fields work FT elsewhere #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:54
@GracieG @lindathestar That’s the truth! “Against helpfulness”! TRUTH WITH A BIG T #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:54
@VCVaile @JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @whowewilltobe @GracieG unless they are blind & gormless there has to be element of denial #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:54
@whowewilltobe @JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile @fabianbanga @GracieG I imagine that the entire faculty is comprised of ex-#adjuncts and @Madjuncts #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Ironic, as the intentions are often the best placed #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:55
@JeffreyKeefer @lindathestar Thanks for joining today’s #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:55

@GracieG @JeffreyKeefer @VCVaile @fabianbanga @whowewilltobe I think that’s on purpose. Isolated we are weaker. #adjunctchat 6/3/14 16:56
@JeffreyKeefer Thanks for giving us lots of food for thought @whowewilltobe. Can you offer any suggestions for next steps? #AdjunctChat 6/3/14 16:56
