The taxpayers of Wisconsin (and the US generally) are paying a moonbat professor $87,224 for engaging in left-wing activism and teaching completely useless classes.
Prof. Karma R. Chavez is an associate professor at UW-Madison’s Department of Communication Arts. According to a UW employee salary database maintained by the Wisconsin State Journal, Chavez made $87,224 during the 2014-2015 fiscal year, and has achieved tenure at the school.
Chavez teaches seven different courses, ranging from “Queer Theory” (CA 969) to “Queer Migrations” (CA 610) and “Rhetoric and Queer Theory” (also CA 610).
Chavez takes pride in her work co-founding of the Queer Migration Research Network, and the UW’s Comparative US Studies (CUSS) group. “I work with various grassroots social justice organizations and collectives,” claims on her official UW biography.
The Queer Migration Research Network describes what it does as, “Queer migration scholarship critically explores how sexual and gender normativities shape, regulate, and contest contemporary international migration processes that stem from histories of colonialism, global capitalism, genocide, slavery, and racialized patriarchy.”
This is why there is a Higher Education bubble fixing to burst. The American system of higher education no longer exists for the purpose of teaching valuable knowledge and useful skills. It is welfare system for radicals, a state-subsidized operation to provide employment for unemployable radicals, and a means for leftists to use taxpayer fund to finance left-wing activism and social destruction.
Imagine the poor saps who graduate with $100K of debt after studying a useless curriculum of “Queer Migration Studies.”
