SF State faculty and staff face rent hikes; retired professors face eviction
Saturday, 24 March 2018 The steps up to Sarah Johnson’s apartment are decorated with sand dollars that she collects, often on walks with her grandson. Inside, light streams into her living room, which she likes, because it makes her feel almost like she’s outside. Johnson, 69, has lived in her one-bedroom apartment near San Francisco State’s campus for four years, but she might lose it soon. Following her retirement last year as director of the Early Childhood Education Center at San Francisco State University, where she worked for 26 years, she is facing eviction from the university’s employee housing. The notice came in the mail four months after she retired: she had to move in 60 days. She says she was shocked.
