Some of the lowest-paid non-tenured parttime faculty at universities are experiencing hard times. The excuse for cuts currently is COVID-19. In this episode, Public Intellectuals Radio podcast host, Teka Lo speaks with two part-time lecturers in the Rutgers Writing Program and elected union executive board representatives, Howie Swerdloff and Karen Thompson, regarding cuts to the New Brunswick campus.
