Corporate pillage and plunder of school children is not limited to testing, charters, etc. in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Remember indentured servants? College age students are being legally indentured. Here are start-up companies that specialize in this. HERE.
For those of you Vulture Capitalists and Sadists who enjoy inflicting pain while making an obscene profit, you may invest in Upstart, Pave, CareerConcept or a bunch of other creative enslavement corporations. The words “slavery” and “indentured servants” are never, ever, never used. That, of course, would not be polite or politic.
“The notion of ‘human-capital contracts’—or ‘social financial agreements’, as Oren Bass, a co-founder of Pave, prefers to call them—may seem creepy. To many, it sounds like indentured servitude. But the notion of acquiring a stake in someone’s future earnings is not unprecedented.” (Even George Orwell would be impressed by these media-savvy word spinners.)
This used to be illegal. Why is it now legal?
Deregulation has consequences. So does slavery – even wage slavery.
Please tell every parent of every child of every age about this 21st Century American horror. Yes, the American Dream is now officially a nightmare.
