"We are workers who deserve fair payment."
My argument is, to (ahem) paraphrase Karl Marx, that we make our own choices about whether to be jerks or not, but not in the conditions of our choosing. We (Post-docs, PhD Students, lecturers that are just starting out) find ourselves in an insanely competitive job market where temporary contracts are on the increase.
I feel like the interview is going well. One of the panel looks down at my CV. He reads my address and postcode 'London N8, that's Crouch End'. He looks up 'Would you move to Glasgow?'
