COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE STRUGGLING
As if college isn't stressful enough! Students are going through a lot of struggling to focus on classes,while having a full time or a part time job.There is a financial pressure on us. We have to pay for all sorts of things,like gas for our cars, food, a place to live ,books and book codes which are always extremely over priced,sometimes over a 100 dollars!
→ 66% dropped out to support a family
→ 57% dropped out to work and earn money
→ 48% dropped out because they can’t afford college
If you thought paying for college it's self was the only hard part then you've got it wrong. A LOT of us have to make a living off of the minimum wage that we are getting.This petition is a call out to the government. The minimum wage prices should be raised to at least $13 in state of Georgia.There should also be an exemption in places while the students are in their first five years of college with proof. They shouldn't have to pay taxes back until they've graduated or until their 5 years is up. This will definitely benefit students that are struggling to have a job and focus in school.
