"I work long nights cleaning the best that i can in order to provide a clean and comfortable environment for students. I am glad to see UCSC growing and constructing new buildings. But I know that we are already stretched thin to clean the existing buildings, and I have serious concerns that the University will have us clean these new buildings without anymore assistance. Although I work full time at UCSC, my family and I are still barely getting by."

- Maria Pinto, Custodian at the Music Center, 4 years working at UCSC


Meanwhile, 65 top executives recently pocketed $2.4 million in bonuses, and a new $192,000 position was invented for the chancellor's partner.


We need your help.
