San Francisco, CA - Hundreds of UC students and workers statewide will join together during the November 16-18th Regents meeting to protest proposals that will unnecessarily harm the public mission of the University of California. On the table are proposals for a differential fee hike where students whose families make over $120,000 will be facing an 8% fee increase. The Regents will also be
imposing increased pay cuts for the pension decreases in retirement benefits that will effectively cut retiree income in half for many employees. Protesters oppose these draconian cuts and the divisive fee increases, when the university is seeing more
revenue due to increased state funding, tuition, federal dollars and other sources. They are demanding no fee hikes for ALL students and no more cuts to staff, many of whom earn below a living wage.
