I remember when, even if you couldn’t afford to go to college after High School, you could take classes anyway and you would eventually get a degree.
And, once you got your degree, there was a whole spectrum of jobs you could apply for.
Also, once hired, you made a larger salary than when you made before.
And you did this while working a good paying hourly job and, of course, you paid for your classes as you learned.
You sacrificed more this way, but You didn’t have an enormous STUDENT LOAN to pay off for the rest of your life.
I just Remember, that’s all!
