More than 26,000 California State University professors and other faculty threatened to strike, successfully winning a salary hike beginning in June. CSU student and South Kern Sol reporter Randy Villegas supported his professors and CSU faculty in their demands for adequate pay. “My professors have a right to a living wage, one that represents just how hard they’ve worked to get where they are. My tuition, on the other hand, should not be paying for outrageous administrator salaries…” He wrote his commentary for South Kern Sol.
