How Can the UCs Layoff Teachers Making 19K with 22,000 people over 150K

Go to this website https://ucannualwage.ucop.edu/wage/ and count the folks making over 150K in the UC system, and think if all 22,000 of them gave up 10% of their salary to save low waged teaching jobs, or notice that if we capped all salaries at 200K we would save roughly a billion dollars, to 250K we would save 750 million.

If I were laid off, I would try and make a living as a carpenter during an economic crash, I would feed my kids and would have a place to sleep, but it would be rough — and the UCs would lose someone who just so loves to teach
