Dear local school experiencing labour unrest,

As a card-carrying member of Halifax’s Joe Q. Public, I absolutely love that you exist in our city. But for fuck’s sake, make up your mind already. Do you want to be a fine arts and critical studies research university, or an art college? Pick one and do it. If the former, support your faculty appropriately and commensurately with other research institutions in the province. If the latter, create teaching-intensive faculty streams and remove the professional practice, research generation and service requirements the job otherwise entails. You can’t have it both ways.

It seems to me that if you spent as much time fundraising as you did making Venn diagrams describing "Community Pillars" and other such horseshit, your identity crisis wouldn’t be one, and you wouldn’t have a bunch of placard-waving, justifiably pissed-off protestors in colorful scarves and designer eyewear marching outside your front door right now.

How many gazillion hours would a single mother have to work at what this city offers as a hourly wage to pay for a decent apartment? Then, if we could make rent, I guess we would have to eat at the food bank.
Halifax employers, up your hourly rate so people can afford a decent living. They time you in this province when you go to break and lunch hours. They do not train people properly here: You are supposed to know exactly what you are doing when you are hired as If you have been there your whole life. Then, they write you up when you make a mistake.
Do away with contract jobs. They're just a way to work people into the ground, in false hopes they will be hired with benefits.
Up your game
