Hey all, at my college (Western Michigan University) next Wednesday, November 18th, students are going to be protesting for
free college coercing taxpayers to fund tuition. More details below. I’ll be there to cover the event just out of curiosity. I disagree with all of their proposed solutions but I am still interested in asking them deeper philosophical questions than they may be used to. I’d love some input if you have any questions you’d want to ask, or any points that I should bring up. Hopefully I’ll film it and post it here on The Dismal Review for ya’ll to see. Thanks!
Congratulations, If you graduated from college this past spring, you’re part of the most indebted graduating class ever! According to a government data analysis by financial aid experts at Edvisors, the class of 2014 graduated with an average student loan debt of $33,000.
The United States is one of the richest countries in the world, yet students have to take on crippling debt in order to get a college education. We need change, and change starts in the streets when the people demand it.
Over 40 million Americans share a total of $1.2 trillion in student debt and over half of that is held by the poorest 25 percent of Americans. While top administrators take home six
and seven figure salaries, campus workers are paid poverty wages.
We will no longer sit idly by. With students, college graduates, and workers united we can build a movement capable of winning debt-free college for all and a $15/hr minimum wage for all campus workers!
Join the movement for:
1 – Tuition-free public college
2 – Cancellation of all student debt
3 – $15/hr campus-wide minimum wage at every college in the country
