Seven in 10 UC Workers Struggle to Feed Themselves and Their Families, Study Shows

Seven in 10 University of California workers in clerical, administrative and support services struggle to put adequate food on the table, according to a new Occidental College study. The study, set for release Monday, found that 45% of 2,890 employees surveyed throughout the 10-campus UC system went hungry at times. An additional 25% had to reduce the quality of their diet. The problems persisted even though most of those surveyed were full-time employees with college degrees and average earnings of $22 an hour.
