The Biggest Middle Finger

December 1, 2008

Here’s some photos of a poster a friend made about the CUNY budget cuts.

“There’s only one thing left to do…STOP THE BUDGET CUTS!”
From what I hear

…the big things that are pissing people
off… the tuition increase and the rise in pay for the Chancellor,
the fact that the budget gets cut the same amount as prison budgets go

There is a bunch of information at the Building the 21st Century CUNY site.

The Unions say
…there was a $50million cut at the end of the Summer and now another $50million cut, the second one comes with the tuition hike – and while it was claimed there would be no personell implications, it is turning out to be bullshit, as some of the
campuses have been responded by asking department chairs to cut their
adjunct budget by 5% – many have been accomplishing this
by firing adjuncts and then making a small number of jumbo classes out
of what were formerly many individual sections.
As the economy continues to flounder, it look like there will be more cuts in every sector.
