"The University of California increased its payroll by 7.5 percent to $12.6 billion in 2014, according to UC payroll data released Wednesday.

According to the data released, the increase in salaries was due to heightened competitiveness in the wage market for employees and an increase in facilities offered by the UC associated with higher student enrollment.

Jim Mora, UCLA’s head football coach, was the highest-paid UC employee. Mora’s total compensation was about $3.5 million, a 44 percent increase from 2013.

Highest-paid employees at the UC were athletic coaches and health sciences faculty. Under the UC’s compensation model, an employee can get additional compensation apart from base pay due to performance, which is more common in the field of sports and health care. The highest-paid employees at UCLA included athletic coaches Mora and Steve Alford, head coach of the UCLA men’s basketball team."

Athletic coaches are the highest paid employees in the university system? What does THAT say about uber-liberal California higher education? And how many of those millionaire coaches are black or Hispanic? Or women? Don't the teachers of Women's Studies, Black Studies and Islamic Studies deserve to earn millions too? Hey, all you uber-liberal California educators and supporters, you're f-ing hypocrites.
