California State University Professors Get Paid to Protest


San Francisco Chronicle columnists Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross report: "California State University East Bay professors who played hooky to protest state budget cuts – but then put in for a full day's pay – are getting a pass from the system's chancellor."


The columnists reported that although there is strong evidence that professors at the campus abused an "honor system" used to report absences, CSU officials said they don't have the money to pay for a full investigation into who actually worked, and who went on strike but still claimed they were working.
