Some food for thought at this back-to-school-time:
In the past 25 years, minimum wage increased 216 percent.
Tuition increased 400 percent.
Twenty-five years ago, more men graduated from college than women.
Today, more women graduate than men.
Just over twenty-five years ago, I did not exist.
Today, I do.
If I applied the logic some of my classmates try to use in class, it would mean that I am reasponsible for the increase in tuition, minimum wage, and the number of women earning college degrees.
*I realize it's tangential to the point of this post, but I'd also love discussion on the tuition/wage increase issue as well as this article about how efforts to boost the status of women have worked (yay for lots of college degrees),but now maybe men need the boost back .... http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2010/07/the-end-of-men/8135/.
