54 striking students have been fired by the union-busting UCSC. This is actually unbelievable. Despite students across the UC putting their jobs on the line, UCSC would rather retaliate than negotiate.

This was sent in response to https://wiki.gnu.tools/git/gnu-tools-wiki/tree/code/sc-email.txt which was made by a number of GNU maintainers. I'll say that I don't think that proposed social contract is even too radical, so that makes the response feel more extreme.
