You are all bumping into one of the many extremely good reasons that your first degree (or other tertiary training) should be free. And if you are made redundant, why you should be able to receive a second tertiary training of some sort free.
Unfortunately, the American dream of success is contingent on having people below you to step upon on your way up. If everyone is given the same opportunities for success, how else would we have an exorbitant amount of fast food employees to lord our superiority over as they serve us our coronaries wrapped in waxed paper? Why else do I slave 40+ hours a week in a tiny room in front of a computer but for the health insurance to keep my family afloat in case of crisis? It could always be worse. I could be a slave filling the food troughs for more superior humans.
