Education is costly, it’s becoming costlier with every passing day! While the curriculum is getting tougher. The courses are more demanding than ever, with larger workloads and higher grade boundaries, and greater competition from within the country and abroad. At the same time, the cost of studying increased tremendously over the last 10 years. In 2005 average student loan debt per student was $10,000, now in 2015, the figure is a whopping $25,000. While, over the same 10 years, the minimum wage has remained the same, almost.
So, students, these days need to find work to support their cost of education. The place we live in has about 8 universities nearby. Most of the area’s restaurants are staffed with local students, waiting for jobs. I wonder if and how much time they get for their studies. I think if students can work at online jobs, they may get more time for studies, compared to the physical jobs I see them doing.
