Spitzer Dragged Into News Again, Donates Teaching Salary
The union complains that "unlike Mr. Spitzer, thousands of adjuncts at the City University live on their substandard CUNY salaries, often less than $30,000 a year." The school says, for one thing, Spitzer was an attorney general and a freaking governor, which are "quite incredible credentials," and that Spitzer wanted to decline salary but was forced to take it by union rules.
Now it turns out Spitzer will donate his salary back to the school "to pay for scholarships." But questions remain! Will he be too high and mighty to hang out in the faculty lounge? Who's that attractive co-ed he's talking to after class? Etc.
Also, as every teacher knows, hourly wages do not take prep and grading into account. Ashley Dupre, who has not yet blogged about this, was paid $4,000 an hour when she worked with Spitzer.
