No, We want to know if they can wait 30 days or more after we start work to pay us. In the past I have gone 3 months before receiving any pay. Many of us teach more than 3 classes, but they say we are part-time. Yet I work 40 to 60 hours per week. We are tired of being treated like we are not important. No other employees are treated as poorly.
We are paid based on the number of students in our classes. When we ask why they can't pay us, they ignore us, hang up, or tell us too bad. No other departments' employees are treated that way. Classes started on the 19th of August. This semester we were told that we would be paid in 8 installments beginning on the 30th of August. When we were not paid, I asked payroll why and was told that we would get paid on September 13th.
