day care if you have kids
hell some people just don't make it
they really just don't 


I posted something about this, you can't live on minimum wage
 
ironically the mandate of minimum wage is why one cannot live on it. it needs to be done away with.

why doesn't the gov take away fin aid refunds? 


I was thinking the same thing but didn't want to ask

You do realize a lot of people use financial aid refunds to pay for classes the aid won't cover
some of my friends use it to buy new laptops
some people use it to buy a car
I don't care
If you not one of the evil mutha*&%^$#@Eas in the one percent
Than I ain't trying to stop your hustle

lol what?
thats money refunded after it pays for your tuition. 

why wouldn't the government for the class? 
they have free computer access at almost all schools, nobody NEEDS a new laptop or a new car. 

people are always complaining about the one percent. but thats basically all they will do.

flowing...financial aid says it's for "books, transportation, room and board, etc"

everyone can't use computers at school.  most working students don't have time to stick around writing papers on campus.

What's the difference between paying for a dorm with financial aid and paying for an apartment with financial aid? Nothing....

business owners complain when minimum wage is raised.  when sf raised theirs from 7 something to 8 something to 9 something now to 10.24 there were complaints and resistance everytime from business owners.  they say it kills jobs.

then where will they write their papers? they don't have an hour to spend using a school computer? no days off? excuses. 
from what i understand they offer book money too right? 

room and board is usually included in tuition (for dorms). if that is the case and they are using it for an apartment instead of a dorm it makes sense.

but a laptop and a car? lol. no. stop playing. 

a refund is just that, excess money given to you. this costs money, people going to school costs money, but some are getting basically paid for it. if they ask you to pay for your own car, or stay on campus instead of an apartment... thats not a big deal.

why are you taking classes that aren't in your degree requirements? Confused
for fun? you're poor and trying to spend more time and money in college?

if someone brings their kid to class, i would be annoyed.
but she's trying to make a change. and good for her. but laquesha could have taken an online course to offer her more flexibility and convenience. Smile

LMAO it does. It's an added cost of doing business.

Employees are the most expensive asset a business has.
