FSM Thanks Guinea Pig M1s by Enlisting them in Forced Labor

NEWS IN BRIEF

CHICAGO – The ongoing AOSC funding debacle rages on at the Feinberg School of Medicine. It appears that students will not be financially compensated for their required summer projects.

“We’ve already sacrificed enough, at least I think so,” M1 Roger Halperton told The Flipside via phone interview. “We’ve put up with the lack of organization, not being able to see our tests, etc. I know we knew the risks of coming to a school starting a new curriculum, but by not paying us this summer [for AOSC research], we’re more or less doing forced labor.”

Students will be offered additional loans as compensation, but that’s not really the issue at hand.

“I pay a lot of money to come to this school,” an anonymous M1 informed a Flipside staff reporter. “So, my point is, why am I paying more money to do more work? Yes, I benefit in that I have the opportunity to do research, but the school and hospital benefit as well.”

The lack of money is certainly unfortunate. Who knows what will upset the M1 class next? Perhaps FSM will take the “guinea pig” logo to heart and make us run in hamster wheels to power the school. That would be actual forced labor. On the bright side, that could be a better use of our time then sitting through two hours of HQPS. Someone should bring this up at the next review panel meeting.
