Not so smart UC professors

Going through the California budget, David Crane discovers that public sector unions have cost UC professors half their long term income.

That leaves only 22% (ie, 100–78) for everything else, but that 22% must also cover Corrections, CHP and CalFire, all involving public safety and politically protected by powerful government employee unions. Public safety takes 10+% of the General Fund, leaving only 12% for UC, CSU and other discretionary categories not protected by contract, statute or the constitution. That’s down from 21% just six years ago; ie, the share of the General Fund available for discretionary items declined 43% in just six years.
I thought the good professors were good at hide and seek for the do-re-me.
