Students and alumni at Brandeis University are calling for their school to end the high pay dished out to someone who doesn't "punch a clock" for his part-time work: ex-president Jehuda Reinharz.

According to the Boston Globe, which is calling for a pay cut for him as well, Reinharz currently pulls down a $287,500 salary, but that will drop to $180,000 next year.
