The UC regents are set to meet later this month and one of the things on the agenda – raising fees. For the third consecutive decade the price of college has increased faster than the rate of inflation; also on the rise – salaries for UC employees. Despite cutting back the number of employees by more than 4,000 since last year the school managed to pay out $200 million more to employees. The number of UC employees that make more than $200,000 a year also continues to grow, though the two may not be related. In fact nine of 10 employees earning more than $200,000 annually in the UC system are doctors who also receive additional salary, bonuses, overtime and negotiated payments from the hospitals where they work; most of the others with high increases are coaches. We take a look at who is making what at the University of California.
