Describe in one sentence the difference between an "adjunct" professor and a "full-time" (i.e., tenured or tenure-track) professor. *
Describe in one sentence what the slogan "\$7K or Strike" means. *
How much does a typical CUNY adjunct make per three-credit course? *
From your answer above, how much do they make PER CREDIT? *
Many adjuncts teach as their full-time job, yet they aren't classified as "full-time" professors. At CUNY, an adjunct teaching as their full-time job is generally limited to a maximum of about 13 credits per semester, or 26 per year. (That said, adjuncts generally have little choice over what they teach and how many classes they teach, so reaching this maximum is rare.) From your answer above, how much does a typical adjunct teaching full-time make in a year? *
A little research:
In this section, you will compare the incomes of different people you know at CUNY, both administrators and professors. The incomes of all New York public-sector employees are publicly listed at SeeThroughNY (https://www.seethroughny.net/payrolls/state-government). You can search for each employee by name using the sidebar on the left. If one of your professors is missing, maybe try searching in year 2017 instead of 2018.

To determine whether your professor is an adjunct or a full-time professor, go to the department's website for lists of full-time and adjunct faculty, then search their name (e.g., for the Hunter English department, the full-time faculty are listed at http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/english/people/full-time-faculty and the adjunct faculty are listed at http://www.hunter.cuny.edu/english/people/adjunct-faculty).
