Did you know a college degree in some cases means HIGHER STARTING WAGES????

The people who need the highest wages the most are the last ones to get them.

This is discrimination, you might as well draw a RED LINE thru education as opposed to neighborhoods.

I posted this link but you dont have to rely on it, what I am telling you is true. There are specific occupations or professions where you get a higher salary as well.

It may not be in all states, but many.

2. Yes. That's why people get college degrees.

I'm not sure how this is discriminatory.

4. So, are you saying

that a doctor who spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and many years in school to earn a degree and medical license should actually make more money than some guy who took a course advertised on the back of a book of matches???

OMG!!!

That's....that's...

preposterous!!!!

5. Well-played.

Although, strictly speaking, copycats in GD are discouraged.

9. And goddammit paying your bills means you get better loans too!

How can they be so discriminatory! If you can pay your bills on time every time obviously you don't need to borrow money in the first place! Why should you get a lower interest rate than a serial deadbeat?
