McGill to eliminate floor fellows

McGill University is abolishing the position of live-in dormitory floor fellows – they’re unionized – and replacing them with a bureaucratic fixture called “residence life facilitators” who will not actually live in the dorms with the purpose of helping young people out on their own for the first time – and, especially appealing to the university, they’re not unionized.

This decision seems notably unwise given all the news about young people struggling with their mental health in an era of social media.
