Update: Organized Protest Pays Off -- Petraeus to Work $1 a Year.
July 15. 2013. The New York Times reports that David Petraeus, after protest from within and without CUNY, will work at Macaulay Honors College for $1.00 a year. That is considerably lower than the $200,000 that CUNY was originally going to pay him for teaching a three-hour course for the 2013-14 academic year. After a shower of protest from CUNY faculty and staff and from elected officials, the salary was reduced to $150,00 and now $1.00.
