Make College Affordable.

IMPORTANT!

Today is January 11, 2007. Those of you who have been keeping up with the new Democratic congress and their first 100 hour priorities should know what today is.

Today is National Make College Affordable Day. Today, read here for more information, a national coalition has gone to DC to make sure Congress “makes good on their promise.”

This is a huge step for college students and for future college students. There may yet be a day where we won’t be under the poverty line when we graduate.

I’m crossing my fingers.

    Or be under the poverty line when we’re in grad school, lol. All my friends who are graduate students all make minimum wage, if you factor everything. It’s so ridiculous. They are making what grad students at UNLV made back in the 80’s. There is no adjustment whatsoever. It’s really sad.

    I hear tell in Wisconsin they’re raising the minimum wage again! Which is a good thing hear, hopefully it will be for other states.

    I think this is definitely a step in the right direction, though it certainly doesn’t mean a lot to the people almost done with school…
