    Is this article some sort of stupid joke? Of course Kaplan as a for profit paid its faculty less than Purdue. However, most of the KU employees will likely be gone soon as Purdue dismantles KU and cherry picks the parts that it wants to keep. Remember if KU was profitable, Graham Holdings would not have given it away. The giveaway was likely prompted by fears KU was going to end up like Corinthian and Graham Holdings would be on the hook for millions.

    When I was an online adjunct, I met few people who were living in places in like Belize and Mexico where salaries and cost of living is lower than the US. I believe the low pay can be compensated with the freedom to chose your place of residence. With 50,000 a year you can live like a king in Belize so it is not such a bad choice for those looking to be in contact with nature and more relax working environment. My only problem is the lack of job security as you are only given short term contracts and as more people get PhDs online, the contract become more difficult to get.
