In this paper an investigation into adjunct instructors is done. It is told who adjuncts are, how many there are, where they work, and how they are treated. A deeper look into adjuncts at Rutgers University is also a main component of this paper, and an interview with someone who works with the adjuncts here was conducted. Her insightful answers to the various questions served as some great knowledge into the adjunct instructors at Rutgers University. Also, the horrible treatment of these adjuncts concerning compensation is shown through a story of a life-long adjunct that suffered tremendously because of these horrible conditions.
