Teaching assistants and other academic workers at the University of California are on strike – and for good reason (“UC strike takes on old-school practices,” Los Angeles Times, Nov. 16). Without them, U.C. couldn’t function, and yet they are paid barely enough to survive.
In Los Angeles and Berkeley, for example, the cost of housing eats up nearly half of their monthly salaries. That leaves them very little to live on. Yet U.C. claims it is paying them enough. It’s time to tell the truth about what is a scandal.
