The article describes the rising cost of tuition in Canada and how the 20+% increase in the last decade is correlated with increases in professor benefits. It sheds light on the student union's reluctance to argue for less benefits because of their solidarity and shared interest with the professor's union. It argues that increases in tuition are strongly correlated with increases in educator's pensions and salaries and states that the student union is not fighting against the educators out of respect for the professor union's right to unionize for higher salaries.
The contents of the article are supported by tuition distribution statistics from The University of Texas. In this visual, you can see that over 40% of student's tuition is going to professor salaries and pensions (a growing university expense because of professor unionization).
