University of California

1 post / 0 new

I went to Univ of California-Berkeley in the early '50s, tuition was not quite free....it cost $15/semester.....student body card was an additional $10 but purchase not required. As far as I remember, a student body card let you into university sport events free. A year or two later, tuition cost $25/semester which included the student body card....the extra $10 hike to be applied to construction of a new student union. I later saw that new student union....it was beautiful....had a bowling alley and all the amenities a student could wish for. Cost was in the neighborhood of $25M.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
