My name is Daniel Story. This is my first year as a librarian at UC Santa Cruz. For me, a June 30th lay-off would mean starting from scratch at a very difficult time for me and my family. My partner has already been furloughed. We can just manage on my salary, but things are tight. More than that, we have three kids who are in middle and elementary school. We just moved from the Midwest for me to take this position and are just getting settled in our new home. Starting over again so soon would be an enormous challenge, if not worse.
