Higher Education Faculty support the OCCUPY WALL STREET protest. We see the impact of the economic crisis in our classrooms and on our campuses each day. Our students are burdened with crippling student loans as they face a bleak and depressed job market and an economic recession with no end in sight, while our institutions increasingly rely on adjunct and part-time faculty. We teach more and more for less and less, and our students suffer as we lose our ability to mentor because of our own lack of time and financial insecurity. The OCCUPY WALL STREET movement is a step towards a better and more just future for our past, current, and future students and for higher education faculty. We stand in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street.

      Because mainstream politics has failed to hold Wall Street to account.

      My students are working 2 jobs to pay for college. Others are dropping out because they can no longer afford college. There is no $$ for higher ed. There are no jobs for people w/out higher ed degrees. This is how we treat the future of our country?

      The ongoing economic disaster this time started in the US, and is a reflection & result of long-standing US policies, widely adopted elsewhere. It is time to bring forth a true human development model.

      While corporations are being bailed out with taxpayer money (whatever happened to capitalism in the US?), and while pointless/bloody/losing wars are being fought by the US in the Middle East and other locations (which wars are very profitable for some corporations), Americans scrape the bottom of the barrel for health insurance/jobs/tuition (and other basic human rights and necessities). Social welfare in the US must be ramped up quickly (and on a large scale)!
