    Its called student loans. Those who live in reality pay it and have college degrees and advanced degrees.

    Its better than living on minimum wage.

    Cost's at Walden:

    Final cost for 2 years: $29,180

    University of Phoenix:
    $22,100 for an AD
    Cost of Bachelors Degree at University of Phoenix is $56,900. $34,800 for years 3 and 4 plus $22,100 for years 1 and 2, or $56,900

    Kaplan University:
    $371 per credit hour
    Associates Degree = 90 credits = $33,390
    $800 Technology Fee

    Bachelors Degree = 180 credits = $66,780
    $1,600 Technology Fee

    The trend follows for each subsequent college listed. Like I said college is more than what you had to pay.

    Then do this. open a restuarant pay your people 15 an hour and see how long you are in business.

    ol wait they tried that. lookup a restuarant in DC that was called colors. they did the same thing and it was a co-op. guess what it failed and is now closed.

MSNBC is terrible but their bigotry isn't as bad as FOX.
    Heh, I too watch those channels solely for comedy relief. And one of my Grandma's sayings was, "freedom also means you're free to starve unless you get off your butt and go to work".

    the tuitions are increasing while our ability to afford such increases is diminishing. Couple that with the pay off being 50/50 bachelors are leaving college and are unemployed at an increasing rate.

    Unemployment Rate - Bachelor's Degree and Higher, 25 years and over - FRED - St. Louis Fed

    Have you been enrolled in an online degree program?

    Because that's not my experience...

    Yes, but their average salaries have increased to where they have more bucks with which to make that bang.

    If you think education is expensive then try ignorance.

    There's always minimum wage.
    No I live in reality. You don't.
