Lecturer layoffs would mean I can’t afford this profession

My name is Oana Tocoian. This is my 2nd year @UCSD, where I have taught over 1,900 students. June 30th layoffs would drive me out of the profession I have embraced for the past 9 years.
The joy and sense of purpose that come from teaching account for ~50% of my compensation. It turns out, the rest is not enough to build up savings.
UC Administrators: you can’t pay us below-market wages AND expose us to full market volatility. Laying off lecturers now would expose this as an untenable career.
