“We were intending on showing up for work,” said Emily Drabinski, an associate professor and one of 12 librarians at the university. “You don’t prevent a strike by locking out your employees.”

It is the student’s loss, while LONG ISLAND UNIVERSITY, takes their classes as hostage to force professors to drop their affiliation with a labor union.  That it is a lesson to learn about social issues in higher education.

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
