AFSCME has been on strike at the university. You probably know this already, but if you don’t, it’s over the amount of correction to their pay it will take to bring them on par with other state employees and how future planned raises will keep up with inflation — at least that’s how I understand it. As an employee of the state (civil service bargaining unit) I am legally barred from a sympathy strike, just like they are legally barred from blocking my access to state buildings as part of their strike. So, it’s not the doom and gloom “strikers are gonna ruin your life” that the administration is preaching. We are missing one staff member from my floor, and one of the main people from the AV area. These two people are critical to our operation. I hope their union gets what it is asking for.
Anyway, on to the images!
The inflation rat. Inflated?
