Tuition Assistance for Hired Help
June 16 2008
Today more and more workers are realizing that they need a degree to get ahead in life. With the constant need of workers, and the need to keep up with the supply and demand, I think that we should have the opportunity to attend school. Assistance in paying for school is a common discussion in the coffee room. Continuing education is very expensive for the average employee here. The rise of employee’s wishing to continue their education is rising everyday that we see new employees hired over us. It is known that an employee with a bachelors degree will make over $20,000 a year more than an employee with the same position with no degree. If you would mandate that every employee obtain at least a “C” average, pursue a degree that is needed by your business, and find a way to cut the cost of tuition, I think that you will not hesitate to initiate the tuition reimburse option. All that we ask for is the assistance that most corporations give their employee’s.
The average student that attends a university cannot afford the cost of tuition, books, and lab fees that are associated with the traditional college life. What I am proposing is that your business pays at least tuition for every class that we receive a grade of “C” in. A “C” is a reasonable grade for the full-time worker and part-time student. I am not saying that you will see all of your employees with a “C” average, but that you will have to give some employees a break for those tuff classes that they just can not grasp. When you give a tuition reimbursement to every employee that attends school, you can see that we are not trying to waist the company’s money, but yet trying to educate ourselves so that we can bring what we have learned to work. With what we learn at school, we could bring it to work and maybe find a way to save money or even cut the cost of production. The employees could bring to work some ideas...
