It’s 2014. Why is the wage gap still an issue?
Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2014 — At the beginning of my final semester in college in 1988, I stood in line to pay my tuition just like 45,000 other students at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
I handed the guy behind the payment counter a check for $608.09. He had no neck and was wearing one of those “wife beater” muscle shirts.
“Hey you, what da hell is this?” Mr. No-Neck snapped at me. “You’re in-state, so your tuition is $868.70.”
