Students Protest Budget Cuts At All 23 CSU Campuses

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) –  It’s unclear if voters or lawmakers will approve Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposed budget cuts, but if so, they will take effect within the next two months.

Demonstrations against possible budget cuts are taking place at all 23 California State University campuses Wednesday including CSU Sacramento.

The Cal State system could lose at least $500 million in state funding if temporary tax increases proposed by Gov. Brown are approved.

    Students should be demonstrating the untoucable education elite (tenured professors and excutive school administration) which have not had any pay cuts.

    Too Bad. You are going to have to pay for your lieral brain washing on your own. Politicians realize you are too busy smoking pot, have gay love or just plain getting drunk to vote. God knows you do not pay any taxes.

      Excuse me… I work 30 hours a week and I am currently enrolled in 19 units at C.S.U. Sacramento. “Higher Ed is a joke” is a terrible human being.

      Wow. I go to Sac State and none of what you said applies to me. I don’t do drugs, I’m married, I work full time, I don’t drink, and I have voted everytime there has been a ballot offered. I have to work full time in order to pay the sky-rocketing tuition and lab fees to afford to be educated and open minded. Perhaps you should look into it. God knows you need it!

      True, but not every student is that way!

  • Josh

    HigherEdIsAJoke needs to stop watchin tv and maybe attend a school and see what it is really like.

    • HigherEdIsAJoke

      I have a BS Degree from Sacramento State. I know exactly what I am talking about. I make $150,000 a year and paid my own way. No grants, loans, etc. I am tired of people wanting hand outs and as you can see the times are changing. You will be responisble for yourselves. So if you want to better yourself then you pay for it. If you think it costs to much ask your lazy professor how many cuts they have taken in tough times. You are protesting the wrong thing. You look like beat neck, dumb axx, free loaders.
