No! to Faculty pay rase University of California

I love University of California (UC) having been a student and lecturer. But today I am concerned that at times I do not recognize the UC I love. Like so many Alumni, Corporate Donors, Legislators, and Californians I am deeply disappointed by the pervasive failures of UC senior management and Regents.
Californians are reeling from19% unemployment (includes those forced to work part time, and those no longer searching), mortgage defaults, loss of unemployment benefits. And those who still have jobs are working longer for less. Chancellor/Faculty wages must reflect California's ability to pay, not what others are paid.
However we also understand that there needs to be reasonable limits that reflect economic realities. UC Berkeley (Cal) pay raises for generously paid Faculty is arrogance.
UC Berkeley (ranked # 70 Forbes) tuition increases exceed national average rate of increase. Chancellor Birgeneaus leadership molds Cal into the most expensive public university in the USA.
Can we do better with a spirit of shared sacrifices by UC Faculty, Provosts, and Chancellors?
(17,000 earn more than $100,000)
18 percent decrease UCOP salaries,$50 million budget cut.
18 percent prune chancellors' salaries.
15 percent trim tenured faculty salaries, increase teaching.
10 percent non-tenured faculty pay decrease, increase research, teaching.
100% elimination of Academic Senate, Academic Council budgets.
There is no question the necessary realignments with economic reality are painful.
UC Board of Regents Chair Sherry Lansing can bridge the public trust gap with reassurances salaries reflect depressed California wages. With UCs shared financial sacrifices, the sky above UC will not fall.

The level of Union Greed in California is stunning. No way can this State survive.
