Professors in Poverty: New Report

April 8, 2015 | By |

Research by the University of California, Berkeley’s Labor Center and SEIU has found that poverty amongst faculty is often higher than Americans.  The research shows that part-time faculty are more likely to be in poverty than the average Americans, ranging from 9% in Nevada to 43% in Maine. All total, 22% of part-time faculty live below the poverty line, while 14.5% of Americans live in poverty (2013).
