"I tell students that the opportunities I had were the result of having a good educational background. Education is what allows you to stand out." - Ellen Ochoa
The "huddled masses" most often come to this country seeking educational and vocational opportunity. And yet now so often a college education is priced out of sight, and vocational training programs are cut out in budget tightening moves. Trump's Labor nominee opposes raising the minimum wage, and his administration has not been supportive of "dreamers."
