Not surprisingly, the more actively people do the “resist the blood-thirsty despot” thing on social media, the more useless they are when one needs them to do something real for the union or to defeat Rauner.
Unrelated, did you hear about how the republican tax bill reclassifies tuition support for grad students as income?
Say your yearly stipend is $25k and tuition $45k, now your tax is going to be calculated on $70k (vs $25k earlier). That’s literally a 3-4x increase.
This is very crazy. How is anybody supposed to know the monetary value of this tuition? My PhD tuition was never defined. I don’t have the vaguest idea how to calculate it.
