Another UC Compensation Scandal


1 comment

Several months ago, people were aghast to learn that UC Berkeley officials had given police chief Victoria Harrison $2.1 million upon her retirement, then turned around and hired her again for more money. Now, University of California officials plan to examine how many Victoria Harrisons they have on the books, and what to do about the "retired" staffers who draw their pensions and get their old jobs back, often with a higher salary. According to the Chron, these double-dippers number about 1,900, drawing more than their share of salary and pension at a time when the system faces massive budget cuts.
