YDN once again presents unidimensional picture of the fight

First we rallied for benefits. yesterday we rallied for enrollment. I have a hard time understanding how all of the issues on our platform that were so clearly articulated in our skits & speeches - parents issues, diversity, visa reform, teaching pay, ect. - can be distilled into "enrollment".

But, you know, we don't really know what we're talking about:

"The bottom line is that there are no new rules and regulations under consideration in the American Studies Program," Faragher said. "Anyone who says otherwise either does not know what they're talking about or they're making it up."

Except for facts like how our transcripts now read "Teaching Fellows Participant". And that PTAIs, who teach everyday make $109 more than folks who teach 2 sections. And all of them make thousands of dollars less than Yale's self-calculated cost of living in New Haven.
