Standard business logic

"The 20 per cent appointments specifically have been used recently by the EECS department to respond to rapidly increasing enrollment."

Presumably rapidly increasing enrolment has resulted in rapidly increasing revenue from fees and a requirement for more hours of teaching assistant work. Teaching assistant administration is now a bigger department with a bigger budget and all possible costs must be cut to feed the head bean counter's new bonus scheme.
