    I've got a few no longer minimum wage earning nephews with community college AAs that would call bull**** on that.

    Sorry Charley, that excuse won't play. It's been dropping steadily since the college system opened up in the mid-60s.

    Cool good for you. To bad your experience is not the same for every one else.
    You?
    Working on my ge and then I will try to get into my local university. I'm navigating through finance options. There very few.


    I'm guessing, based on your posts, that you aren't willing to make the commitments I did to get where I am today.
    Interesting. You're wrong. But interesting all the same.

    How's that minimum wage working for you?
    It's a struggle. I'm often tired. Thanks for asking.

    You are mistaken. If the online course is from an accredited college or university, it's an accredited degree. You don't know what you're talking about.

    There not excuses there just the facts. Oh and btw the country doesn't comprise of just the state of texas. Their progressive pricing does not affect the nation as a whole unfortunately since pricing remains high everywhere else, including with your online degrees.

    Thanks for the anecdote. I have statistics that would make them eat their words. Again there is difference from your experience and the experience of the majority.

    College education becoming too expensive for middle class

    However, a much more common reason is that the cost of tuition becomes an unsustainable burden, with “more than 50 percent of students who fail to graduate the high cost of tuition and fees.”


    Sorry Charley, that excuse won't play. It's been dropping steadily since the college system opened up in the mid-60s.

    Just to let you know, I worked full time during both graduate programs. It wasn't easy. I have experiences you don't. The bottom line is, if you want it to happen, you can make it happen.

    Good luck to you. Work your ass off and make it happen.

    The reality is that liberals rather whine than work to succeed. Coming from a single mother with only a HS diploma, my younger brother and I each went to 6 years of college and had our student loans paid off in less than 2 years. Sacrifices included splitting an apartment with a coworker until I met my wife.

    Turned out it was put on by SEIU. How astonishing.

    One of the biggest protests globally in solidarity with eachother all revolving around raising the minimum wage. I support these protests, and believe not only should the minimum wage but one of the most profitable industires should be paying their employees much much better. Im behind the $15 demand.
    The link is revealing in the lack of details.

    It started with 200 people in NYC and spread to about 1000 across the US. Which means it is irrelevant.

    Most fast food workers seem ok with what they make I have seen none on strike anywhere in the city I live in.

    So much for workers of the world unite. Socialism falls flat again.

    Your personal story doesn't refute the reality of what the majority is going through. And the majority of those struggling to get through college because the financial burden and rising cost of living is a reality. The income required is beginning to supersede what a middle class, let alone a lower class, citizen can afford no matter the amount of work put in. You choice to ignore these variables is willful ignorance.
