Inside Outside Upside Down
(Politics, Spin & Picket Duty)
It's not only mechanics that are leaving the City, the library has recently lost two of its librarians. One might question whether the strike's played a role or whether is just part of the greater retention issue so many organizations are experiencing. However, a strike plus the deprofessionalization librarians are suffering especially in public libraries plus low wages ---- the decision to leave is not so difficult.
What do you mean by "deprofessionalization?"
Eliminating librarian positions and replacing them with inadequately trained library technicians, to start. VPL has no problem recruiting new librarians, but the pay and the working conditions make retention of them much more difficult.
