Paul Bali’s Story

Posted March 2nd, 2015 By OCUFA

Philosophy, Ryerson University

I’ve worked as a contract faculty member for twelve years. I currently teach Philosophy. I love my job because I enjoy opening minds and having mine opened.

If contract professors became full-time faculty, we could offer so much more to universities, students and Canadian research. As a full-time faculty member, I would have the opportunity to devote more time to teaching and learning.

I have some inconsistent and minimal benefits. This is on top of <$10,000 in student debt I owe after studying at University of Toronto to become an expert in Philosophical Theology. My current income is $50,000. I currently have little formal job security.
