The union for the Community College where I teach has declared a strike tomorrow demanding better wages (working with no contract, years of austerity measures that keep our salaries below where they were in 2007, etc).
I need ideas for picket line slogans. So far the best I’ve come up with is LEARNED SAGES DESERVE REAL WAGES, but I’m worried that may come off as kind of elitist. Ideas?
ETA: Here are the finalists so far. I’ll add other promising ideas as I see them.
- Learned sages deserve real wages
- First Class Faculty, Not Second Class Citizens
- Keep CCSF from Losing its Faculties
- Cost of livin’ should be a given
- Good teachers are priceless, not free
- You can’t put students first if you put faculty last
