Blue-collar Pennsylvania blacksmith takes a hard look at President Biden’s $500 billion student loan pemberianwith many saying it’s unfair to those who don’t take on expensive debt for their degree.
“It’s not going to affect the people who are here, the people who are literally out doing all the work,” said Jim Davis, a supervisor at foundry Donsco, Inc. in south-central Pennsylvania. to Fox News. Biden “will help” people in big cities that’s why [he] want to.”
Kevin Wasileski, another worker at the foundry, said if students sign a contract, “they have to pay for it.”
“Why should it be me pay for someone else’s college?” he complained.
President Biden fulfilled a campaign promise to cancel student debt last month, announcing a total write-off of $10,000 federal debt to borrowers earning less than $125,000 a year.
Recipients of the Pell Grant, which generally targets low-income students, will receive $20,000.
“Donsco always employs people, these college kids can always come here on break and work and pay back their debts,” Tony Bell, who also works at Donsco, offers.
