    I live in the world of reality. If you have a solution that includes all the real variables, low income jobs, low income families, and increasing tuition that is exceeding a total of 30,000 then by all means share with us.

    Lol thanks.

    You know, sometimes I really do get frustrated with how little freedom we have here. But then I remember FOX news (which I still do watch from time to time admittedly for comedic reasons mostly) and I certainly wouldn't want that kind of freedom over here. MSNBC is terrible but their bigotry isn't as bad as FOX.

    Reality dictates that if you want purchasing power then get an education that allows you to acquire a job that pays that well.

    What kind of essential skills do you think minimum wage workers possess?

    So you would let that get in your way of a good education?

    If you think education is expensive then try ignorance.

    There's always minimum wage.
