In Part I of our special two-part BONUS EPISODE on labor, class,
and higher education, we chat to Trevor Griffey, writer, historian,
and Labor Studies lecturer at the University of California, Los
Angeles and California State University, Dominguez Hills. Trevor
breaks down the insidious, decades-long effort to devalue academic
labor at the administrative, legislative, and cultural level, and
we talk about the resulting crisis academic workers are facing
today and what to do about it.
