The University of Arizona is paying students $10 per hour to assume the responsibilities of “Social Justice Advocates.”
According to an online job description, Social Justice Advocates, or SJAs for short, “will be responsible for instituting monthly programmatic efforts within the residence halls that focus specifically on social justice issues,” such as setting up “bulletin boards in the halls” and hosting “social justice modules once a month for the RAs.”
Successful applicants will be expected to “report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff” in addition to hosting bi-semesterly “Real Talks” with dorm residents.
“The position also aims to increase understanding of one’s own self through critical reflection of power and privilege, identity and intersectionality, systems of socialization, cultural competency, and allyship as they pertain to the acknowledgement, understanding, and acceptance of differences,” the job description elaborates, noting that the ultimate goal of the position is to “increase a student staff member’s ability to openly lead conversations, discuss differences, and confront diversely insensitive behavior.”
Notably, SJAs are paid an hourly rate of $10, and are expected to work an average of 15 hours per week, meaning students who fill the position can expect to make about $150 per week for promoting “inclusive communities through positive interactions.”
Go here to read the rest. Well let us give the University of Arizona some credit for being forthright. Only someone living under a rock could fail to notice that most campuses in this country are dominated by those who adhere to leftist politics and that dissenting views are as welcome as pro-life advocates in the Democrat party.
I like the concept of the student commissars being paid ten bucks an hour to squeal on fellow students. Cheap Judases indeed. This points out one of the many difficulties when an institution is transformed into a vehicle of one party thought control: one can never be politically pure enough. Thus heretics must ever be ferreted out, punished and purged. That this has nothing to do with higher education goes without saying, but this is what passes for higher education on all too many campuses in this country, the largest of them almost always being supported by taxpayers, and the remainder being supported by Federal student loans. We are paying quite a bit of money to have students subjected to leftist brainwashing, and that is pathetic beyond belief.
