1%Hillary thinks working 10 hours per week will pay all bills other than tuition

Lets see... 15 years ago the dorm cost $800/month. 10 hours per week x 15$ per hour x 4 weeks = $600/month. Great math Hillary. You are 25% short using 2000 costs and 2015 incomes, and not taking into account food (yes students eat)

2. But she worked hard!

Sorry but many of us worked hard Hillary. We just didn't have your connections. Working hard is no guaranteedof financial security in this country. Ask the women working four part time jobs how easy it is to put food on the table. I find all these 1 % talking about alll their hard work so patronizing.

9. my paper delivery gal has this life, MRS. CLINTON:

she delivers papers in the dark, works as a maid, then waitresses. Total hours of employment a day: 20. Count them. T.w.e.n.t.y.

I asked her how she slept, HOW DO YOU MANAGE!?!

I pull over delivering papers and close my eyes for about twenty minutes. Taking care of three kids alone and this life. FUCK THE 1%.

I actually showed a homeless woman how she can sleep in her u-haul unit without getting caught. Go in just before 7 pm when they lock up, avoid the one camera here, don't touch the doors or they alarm, sleep and you will be okay when the doors unlock at 7 am the next day.

Welcome to the America Hillary doesn't even know exists.

4. Agree

And I understood what she was saying. It was a good answer--the question was a goading one--trying to get them to attack each other. Neither one fell for it

11. I actually did this in the early 2000's in college

I worked between 20 and 40 hours a week (varying based on semester often closer to 40)...

I graduated a state school with 67K in debt.

12. Thanks for sharing this data point

 

Realistically speaking, non-tuition costs are housing, food, and transport.... if it were possible to pay for all those costs while working 10 hours/week, no one would be going hungry, or homeless, in this country. What a joke. The poor work 50+ hours per week and cant save a freakin dime. Get out of the clouds Hillary, there is a whole other world down below you.

14. But lil' Chelsea got a job at a hedge fund and bought a $10M apartment...

why does everyone think the American Dream is dead?

I bet if everyone just worked as hard as Chelsea, they wouldn't complain so much!

Bunch of slackers!!!

15. It's such fail

For a 16 week semester, room and board is about $7000 today. That's $450 a week, or $45 an hour before taxes. She has no idea about real world prices. All she knows is that she gets paid $400,000 per speech, so that money is easy.

16. Yea, but she "works hard" for it

 

She also knows her daughter got a Hedge fund job after graduating and could afford a million dollar apartment... obviously anyone else should be able to do the same, unless they don't "work hard".

Kind of makes you think that hole "we were dead broke" (after leaving the white house) comment was her literal interpretation of what being dead broke means.
