These public serpents made big money raping the taxpayer and students via tuition hikes. Observe below the pay for the top 20 most paid UC employees. The numbers are shocking and downright disgusting. This is just another example of America's descent into a kleptocracy gone wild.

These 20 kleptocrats earned a combined $19.1 million in 2008 alone.
A protest turned violent today after the UC Rejects (read: Regents) approved a 8% tuition hike on students. At Wednesday's protest, police arrested 13 people, including 10 UC students, during the demonstration outside the campus building where the Board of Regents was meeting. One student was arrested for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon after a campus police officer was hit in the head with his own baton.
The vote by the UC Board of Regents' finance committee comes a day after a student protest left four police officers injured and more than a dozen demonstrators arrested. There were no protesters at Thursday's meeting.
Later in the day, the full board was expected to approve the tuition hike, which follows a 32 percent increase this year.
In fall 2011, student fees for California residents would increase by $822 to more than $11,000. That doesn't include individual campus fees or room and board. The increase would raise an estimated $180 million in annual revenue, with about one-third set aside for financial aid.
Under the plan, the 10-campus system would expand its financial aid program, called the Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan, so most students from families earning less than $80,000 annually would not have to pay any tuition. The program currently covers families earning less than $70,000.
Ha ha ha. Ha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. "So most students would not have to pay any tuition" so states the article. Ever heard of student loans you fucktard reporter?? You better believe they will be paying for tuition PLUS daily accruing interest. I sincerely hope that parents and students that read this type of garbage don't believe that the education will be "free" because it's not. More likely, these students will incur close to 100k in debt as classes are hard to find and books, supplies, and housing costs continue to escalate. The UC system was great until the faculty turned into parasites living off the blood of students.
The reality is that the UC system would not have to implement hiring freezes or layoffs were it not for these extravagant wages paid to bureaucrats that do jack shit but push paper.
According to UC President Mark Yudof, however, this is not the case:
Inside the public meeting, UC's finance experts told the regents the state restored only 58 percent of what it had cut since 2008, and that rising costs - especially pension obligations - mean UC has to ask students to pony up yet again.
"What happens if you don't do it?" Yudof asked the regents, his voice tense. "You'll have to abolish programs. There would be more layoffs - probably 5,000 to 10,000. You'll have to reduce enrollment targets. I wish UC were free. But that's not the world we live in."
How about the 21,000 UC employees making over 100k a year take a salary cut and that way tuition could fall AND the system would NOT have to lay off any teachers? How about cutting some of the pension benefits that so many "retired" professors and faculty continue to enjoy year after year? Of course now that isn't going to happen now is it as you are all in bed with each other. What a shame it is when the UC faculty turns into a smaller version of the wall street rape and pillage scheme.
And last but not least, the 2008 take home pay of UCLA Law Professor Mark Greenburg was $359,000.
Good job Mark, good job. I bet it must be so hard being a law and philosophy professor, NOT.
