Beating someone who is already down? She's the one who described herself as 'second tier'. The tier one occupies is not assigned by some outside "force", it is self-defined.
Interesting comment on the article. Nothing like beating someone who is already down. And nothing said regarding the American Federation of Teachers? Really, now. At the Los Angeles Community College District office time pay and office space (usually shared with one or two others, but there's a phone and computer, plus shelf space), all negotiated by AFT Local 1521. It's insulting to accuse someone who is trying to survive by telling that person to go work in a factory.
