Protect Our Tuition Benefits Today!

The Republicans’ tax proposal will tax our tuition benefits AND end the deduction for interest payments on student loans. How many of us took our Rutgers jobs for the tuition benefits? This would hurt us badly. Vote could come today. Please sign and share immediately!

The Republican tax bill currently before Congress will have a severe negative impact on students and higher education in the US. Sign the AAUP’s petition…onefacultyoneresistance.org.
