    That chart leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Check out the AAUP-OSU’s proposed amendments to see what I am talking about:

    Unfortunately, I think that the chart answers a lot of questions. It says that a lot of folks were bullied into voting for furlough requirements before they could really think about it and that people who make more than $130,000 should have been required to take more days off. Per my previous post on furloughs and privilege, I wholeheartedly agree with the AAUP’s proposal.

    4 furlough days for someone who makes $29,400 is not the same as 12 furlough days for someone who makes more than $130,000 per year. The cut is not truly proportional…
