Thank you for Gordon's article. I am a part-time teacher at a local community college. I am limited to nine hours of teaching per week at any one college; if I had more class time, the college would be obliged to give me benefits. Heaven forbid! I am single and pay no rent because I live in my grandmother's house. Therefore, I am able to live on my teaching income as long as financial emergencies don't arise.
