Entitlement Society: Grad Can't Find Job, Sues Her College For Tuition Back

from the entitlement-culture-gone-wrong dept

We've been talking a lot about "entitlement culture" these days, with much of the focus being on companies or individuals who feel entitled to keep their old business models, even as the market is changing. But entitlement society shows up in other places as well. Jeff Nolan points us to the story of a college graduate who has been unable to find a job since she graduated in April and is now suing her college, Monroe College, for the $70,000 she spent on tuition. Apparently, the fact that we're in one of the worst economic downturns in ages doesn't come into play. Or the fact that what you learn in college (hopefully) lasts a lifetime. To this woman, the fact that she hasn't been able to find a job in four months means she deserves her entire tuition back?

    I know how it feels

    I know what it's like looking for a job in this horrid economy. I've been trying to keep a budget and have blogged about it for months.
