I'm the assistant chair of a philosophy department at a very poorly funded public commuter school that has been using adjuncts as de facto full-time faculty for years now. Our administration has just told us that we may have to throw a bunch of these people out on the street as early as the beginning of summer so that we won't have to pay for their health insurance. I'd be curious to know whether fellow philosophers elsewhere in the country might be going through a similar ordeal, and what strategies they've been adopting for dealing with it.
