Threats and charges are flying as faculty members ponder a possible strike at Mt. Hood Community College. The Portland Business Journal reported that the college's board has threatened to hire a permanent new faculty if the professors go on strike. The faculty responded with this statement: "Quality education is not built overnight; it’s not found by hiring scab labor from online job postings such as Craigslist or rushing to fill an empty classroom with an instructor who is ill-prepared for the job. The college’s threat to replace full-time faculty with scab labor is a rejection of a shared commitment to quality public higher education."
