Not to mention spending all that money and graduating with no skills that have any value to any employers. Reminds me of an article in the WSJ a while back were a Stanford graduate with a 4.0 in Art could not find a job except at Starbucks, and she was complaining it was just not fair becuase she had worked so hard. But a welder graduating from a trade school can start in $50K range with virutally no debt.As a taxpayer, if we keep subsidizing education, the institutions of higher learning will keep increasing the "costs" of an education to meet the ever increasing supply of taxpayer subsidized money.
Anyway, there is no pilot shortage. There is only a shortage of pilots willing to fly for regional compensation. That's the point ALPA has been trying to make.
