Oxymoron, low income tradie.

Ain’t that the truth. :)

Free education is at fault.

It’s an unearned “gift” to which everyone is “entitled”. So they feel the entitlement.

The sooner education has to be earned the sooner we’ll see a return to respect for it. Free stuff is valueless.

You know that we haven’t had free university education for 3 decades?

as this is coming from a man who (I presume) benefited from Whitlam’s education policy, I guess you’re having a joke :)

Well no, I came from a system where you worked for the results, you got a scholarship which covered fees. That was effectively free, but it was “earned”.

But we have had valueless education. Ask anyone who doesn’t intend to pay off their hecs debt… Our kids payed as they went, and worked very hard to do that, the youngest completed three degrees with no debt. They all have friends (around their 40’s now) who have either not worked at all, or worked below the minimum threshold for Hecs payments… if that’s not free it was education that was either stolen or had no value.
