Ten Reprimandments

1.       Thou shalt not consider any authority above college administrators, not even the U.S. Constitution or a century of labor legislation.

2.       Thou shalt not take the name professor or consider thyself faculty; to do so is in vain.

3.       Thou shalt not remember to rest any day, but to plan lessons and grade papers without ceasing.

4.       Thou shalt not kill the ways we exploit thy labor.

5.       Thou shalt not steal any time to have a life.

6.       Thou shalt not envy thy regular faculty’s living wage; poverty and food banks for thee.

7.       Thou shalt not covet thy custodian’s health-care plan; thou must stand in line with indigents at free clinics should thou become ill.

8.       Thou shalt honor thy administrators who do not honor thee.

9.       Thou shalt not commit democracy.

10.    Thou shalt not bear false witness against administrators even as they do so against thee.
