“Many can't afford school, and for most, school no longer pays off. Besides there are few/no jobs avail for grads either.”

“Off topic for which I apologize. I've read through some of your comments after your 'Fanning' me - standard protocol - and couldn't help but notice that you've not posted since HP's Dec. 10th D-Day (requiring FB accounts to remain as a HP user) which is rather unfortunate as your comments were well thought out and concise. So I'm 'Fanning' you back in the hopes that someday you reconsider posting and HP restores those "Social News" features such as Comments by Friends which made HP the best site for the exchange of information and ideas.”

“There are no other jobs to progress to, that's the problem. Declining school assistance, low opportunity, college is now NOT a good investment on average (the old "million dollar over a lifetime" meme has been disproved now). It's a systemic, economic problem, not a human nature "laziness" problem that has suddenly developed.”

“Kind of a "blame the poor" argument, yet again. You can't ignore the stats that show severe lack of opportunity and especially upward mobility in the US as compared to nearly every other industrialized country. You know, facts vs your "just work hard" ideology.”

“McDonald's = job experience. In my hometown I see mostly 14 year olds working with a smattering of older workers. Get some experience and move on. I worked fast food in high school, went to college earned my degree and now have a career.”

“You mean the unconstitutional income tax? At an all time low? I would love to see that fact and even if it is fact. Do you not realize that your "other taxes" are higher? Your "hidden" taxes are higher?

Do you honestly believe taxes all around on the Federal, State, and Municipal levels are at an all time low? Maybe where you live... but that's just not reality for most people.”
