This is the kind of thing I have to deal with.

See here for a three paragraph whinge on the CUPE 3903 strike. This is the sort of thing I have to grade on a regular basis, folks. The student who wrote it actually thinks she's making sensible points and cogent arguments.

Here's the basic thing the "argument" misses: grad students also pay tuition (indeed, grad students pay a fixed level of tuition for every semester, regardless of whether they take courses or not), and grad students are also having their programs affected by the strike.

I weep for the future of humanity.
