Bailey Jay, Climbing, and Clothes: shared Jimmy Rat's post 3 hrs RMEDFORCES RECRUİTINGs Jimmy Rat February 18 at 1:29pm e Hey guys, this is the government office where you can apply for your free college They'll even give you on the job training, work clothes, a free place to live and three hot meals a day all with the additional potential of international travel to Iraq &/or Afghanistan. Oh, you don't like "free stuff anymore? Comment 3 people like this I'm sorry, but the whole "join the military if you want free education" thing is bs. You shouldn't have to go through severe physical and psychologic al reconditioning, risk your life, or sign up for a war that you are morally opposed to in order to get an affordable educ ation. Honestly most people fighting for "free" educ ation aren't even asking for "free" education, they're asking for AFFORDABLE education, you know, like the generation before ours had, before the politicians they voted into office screwed that up for US Like Reply 2 hrs Free educ ation isnt free. Lets say Benie gets you a " free" education. You get a nice job with your ology degree, making 30k a year, but gollee gee whilickers: The government ( bernie) wants 65 % of your paycheck to help other kids get PE and ology degrees. Its NEVER free Like Reply 55 mins Like I said, I don't want a FREE education. I understand how socialism works. I want an AFFORDABLE higher education. Like the one your generation and the one before it had, before they screwed it up for MY generation. Let me break this down for you Annual tuition for Yale, 1970: $2,500 Annual tuition for Yale, 2014: $45,800 Minimum Wage, 1970: $1.45 Minimum Wage, 2014: $7.25 Assuming you work every single day for the 4 years of your undergrad (1460 days) and every single penny you make goes to tuition (and tax deductions aren't factored in). Daily hours at minimum wage needed to pay for tuition in 1970: 4.72 Daily hours at minimum wage needed to pay for tuition in 2014: 17.31 Annual tuition for Yale, 1970, adjusted for inflation to 2014: 15,253.61 Minimum wage, 1970, adjusted for inflation to 2014: $8.85 This is what we're given to work with and we're called lazy and entitled when we call foul. Know why this is what we have to work with? Because YOUR generation and the generation before it decided THEY wanted to go to school for free", or rather on the government's dime, until they graduated and got a job to pay them back with reasonable interest rates. Great plan right? Wrong Because that gave the schools free reign to jadk year, because now the government was guaranteeing them that money. Same with textbook companies, who can now charge $200 for a spiral-bound, 150 page book that gets slightly re-worded and re-organized every year and branded with "-edition" that your school requires you purchase in order to get an online code to access your assignments for that course. Cant buy an old edition! That code has been used before! By the way, you'll use that text book exactly 4 times all semester. Want to sell it back at the end of the semester? You'll get $25-$30 in bookstore credit for it. They can do this because the government subsidizes it. Who decided to let them do that? Wasn't my generation! And since then, the govemment has raised interest rates on those loans exponentially. Because before, where a few people needed loans to attend college, now it's nearly impossible to pay out of pocket for your average 4 year university, certainly not for the middle class, and even more so for the lower class that right wing conservatives LOVE to blame for being lazy and not going to school and getting education to improve their circumstances Meanwhile, the average college senior is graduating with over $35,000 in student loan debt with interest rates starting at 4% and climbing steadily from there, into an economy where the unemployment rate for young graduates is at 7% and the underemployment rate is at 15%. It'll take the average student close to 20 years to pay off that debt, due in part to the interest rates, but also due to the low starting salaries, abysmal employment rates, the rise in the cost of living, the housing market crash caused by THE EXACT SAME STUPID GOVERNMENT SUBSIDY PLAN, and the recession that not my generation, but the ones before it hurled us into. their tuition rates up every So no, I'm not asking for "free" anything. I'm aware that such things don't exist. I'm simply asking that we be given the same opportunities as the generations before us without being called the "entitled, selfish, lazy generation". We are adapting as best we can to the mess that was handed to us by a generation far more entitled than our own.
