One article from USA Today, “How Much Would a MinimumWage Increase Help Students?” by Jackie Tempera, features a college student, Christin King. Christin says she is really stressing out, struggling to pay for the following necessities, but she says, not having a job is not an option. Tempera says that if the minimum wage were raised, it
And with the economic conditions threatening jobs security across the country, parents and prospective students alike are questioned whether they can afford colleges or not. People complain that schools are charging more and giving less. Colleges and universities have been struggling to survive serious funding cutbacks by raising tuition.

The promise of enlistment bonuses and money for college is guaranteed in writing when a person enlists. Money and opportunity for college is always available. The most common reason that this writer has observed for it not being used is lack of desire by the individual. Some people just do not desire to get a higher education, even if they don’t have to pay for it.
The bottom line is that the high and rising cost of college isn’t a good thing and reduces the amount of qualified workers.

College used to be the place you go in order to get better jobs than the rest of society, kind of like a shortcut to success. Nowadays that is no longer the case, in fact, the opposite is true.
