As a UC graduate (Berkeley, 1962, Political Science), I was disappointed, if not surprised to come across the  web site noted below.  It states, among other things, that ” … as many as 96% of UC service workers qualify for at least one of the following forms of public assistance: food stamps, WIC and childcare and public housing subsidies.  Wages are so low that many can not meet basic family needs and are forced to seek additional jobs.”

Whether you are a fellow alum or not, I urge you to take a look at this page and at least be aware of the disgraceful labor relations that seems to be the reality at one of the world’s most respected and prestigious institutions of higher learning.
