but the question remains: what do instructors want now?
Most just want to be paid fairly and have decent(ish) conditions to work in. It ultimately doesn't take much for most instructors to be happy. The situation with coronavirus is going to exasperate everything as a workforce that could easily have been furloughed is going to be decimated by months of hardship. Who knows who will be left after and which issues will be the most prevalent.
The question of employment status(and the protections it can afford) only really come up when someone has royally taken the piss. To different instructors this will mean different things but it's getting to the point enough are ticking enough boxes of ways training providers have taken the piss it's something the majority can see value in.
