    Have you looked into the real reason college tuition is going up so dramatically?

    Again reality is different from your world of fantasy.
    Whose fault is it that an earned degree does not guarantee a job?

    Also can you tell me a time when holding a degree did guarantee a job?

    What these idiots don't understand is that if they join the union, any raise they get will go directly to the union dues for them to keep that job.

You choice to ignore these variables is willful ignorance.
    How do you know what the majority are going through?

    The idea of fast food (unskilled and untrained) are worth $15 an hour plus the burdens of employment (about 20%) is ridiculous.

    There is a reason why McDonald's ordered 7,000 tablet order devices for its euro stores - they will get the bugs worked out and replace the people here who believe they should earn FAR more than they are worth.

    I think they'd probably be a lot more successful, and garner a lot more support if they were asking for something more reasonable. $15/hr is nearly double what they're making now.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
