A group of Canadian academics have found a unique way to protest at the extraordinary pay being offered for the next President and Vice Chancellor at University of Alberta.
Seeing the $400,000/year salary on offer, 56 academics currently working at the university have applied for the job. But they’re applying in groups of four.
The protesters’ logic is that the salary would be a very comfortable amount for the four of them to split, and they’d do a much better job than any single person, even if it was just because they had so much more time to dedicate to the work.
