My name is Amy Clarke. This is my 24th year of service at UC Davis. For me a June 30th lay-off means retiring before full retirement age and without reaching my highest average salary. Since I’m too old for another career, I will retire without enough funds to cover my needs as I age.

I am unlikely to be laid off given my seniority, but it is always a possibility since I do not have job security. I know what it is like to be forced out of this job that I love and to which I have given my whole career. In 2001 I was already illegally terminated by UC Davis. and it took the union suing on my behalf to restore me to this work. There was no financial need to terminate then — it was just a way to bust the union and remove lecturers from their jobs.
