My name is Michael Calderon-Zaks. This is my second year as a Lecturer at UCSD and first year at UCLA. For me, a June 30 layoff would hurt me financially and would limit my access to UC resources to enhance my teaching and research. Layoffs would hurt students, who would lose experienced instructors who spend more time with them. Layoffs would hurt tenure-track faculty since they’d have to take over our classes while rushing to meet their publishing deadlines.
