Excellent idea. Kudos to Mercyhurst.

So what. Much of the money that these laid-off folks will use for tuition is going to come from federal education benefits available to laid-off manufacturing workers. Hell, why do you think that schools also embrace returning veterans so much? It's because of the big chunk of federal education money that comes with them.
Sure, Mercyhurst deserves some credit for lowering tuition rates for these folks. But please don't make this bigger than it is.
Education also doesn't "create" opportunity in Erie. The jobs have to actually exist first.

You are absolutely correct. This is merely a money grab of federal retraining dollars by Mercyhurst, disguised as good works. They learned well from the Erie benedictines

Hopefully, they are teaching these techniques in their business school. We don't really give a shit where the revenue comes from as long as a good portion of it ends up in our pockets. Again, it's not our fault if suckers are so easily separated from their money. We sleep well at night because we have money. We don't give a shit about morals.

What about the laid-off workers around the area who were not making 30 dollars an hour? Mr. Gamble is the same person who shut down Mercyhurst-West in Girard. Mercyhurst bought a existing church and converted it to a 1 room school. Mercyhurst never laid 1 brick or improved the property in any way. Mr. Gamble tried to blame the community for lack of support. Mercyhurst failed the few students that enrolled at Mercyhurst-West.`
