Pay Us Back!
Send a message to Vice Chancellor Darrell Bazzell to tell him why we need a raise! Graduate employees do the bulk of instruction on campus, in addition to working as irreplacable research and project assistants -- for much less than the cost of full-time faculty. Despite the value we add to the UW, our take-home pay has fallen almost $1600 (inflation-adjusted) in the last decade. Tell the administration: pay us back!
