Do you think it’s fair for senior UC executives to receive $300,000 a year for life after they retire? Like the Governor of California, UC executives are taxpayer supported public servants. If you believe they should be held to the same standards as California’s Governor, sign the petition to support fair pension reform at UC. It is critical that we stop the exorbitant executive payouts that are draining funding from UC’s education and health delivery programs and forcing California students, patients and taxpayers to pick up the tab.
As California taxpayers we have to make decisions about how we want our money spent. I believe the tens of millions of dollars a year that capping executive pensions at UC would save would be better spent sending low-income kids to college, improving patient care and stabilizing UC’s finances. Please support this common sense solution to help get UC back on track.
