Recently laws have been passed by the Obama administration that places a definition on the amount of classes that an affiliate faculty member can teach before the institution is required to give them benefits. This is, on paper, a great thought and would benefit the affiliate faculty, yet in reality is not the case as universities will now look for ways to reduce the load of affiliate faculty members so that they are not required to give them benefits. In most universities, the affiliate faculty member is paid on the amount of classes that they teach, and this makes it far more difficult for them to make a living, as they are now limited in the amount of classes that they can teach. I believe this to be an example of a governmental decision that is not versed in what the impact will actually be on a business side. Decisions like these must be made through the lens of reality and not through an idealistic view.
