    Obviously this is a right wing nutto biased article

    Among Benefits For Walmart Workers: A Degree

    by Claudio Sanchez


    For Walmart, it was a marriage made in heaven. But for Wally Boston, president and CEO of American Public University, initially there were concerns.
    "We did not want to put ourselves in a situation where our reputation for quality was damaged," Boston says. He was concerned that potentially doubling APU's enrollment might stretch its services and instructors beyond their capabilities, especially because Walmart employees tend to be older adults who are juggling work and family.
    "An adult population is actually considered high-risk," Boston explains. "You can have debt issues managing your budget and those problems in life can exacerbate someone's ability to complete an academic degree — and many times leads to students dropping out."
    Brew says the company is putting $50 million into this project over the next three years to make sure it succeeds. So far, only 400 Walmart employees have signed up, but the company intends to roll the project out slowly.

    They take more out of the communities than give back otherwise they would be out of business.

    If the taxes went up it wouldn't be a tax cut.

    You didn't read what I posted then.

    An honest analysis of the numbers would be nice.

    Yes, because he was the one who didn't find his veto pen until 2007. He didn't mind unfunded tax cuts and bailing out the irresponsible banks. Spending wasn't THE problem when he was President.
