Grad Tax Plan Walkout/Rally Tulane University

  • LBC Pocket Park 129 McAlister Drive New Orleans, LA, 70118 United States (map)

Hosted by Rick Vik

The importance of higher education cannot be understated.
I hope people will be able to join me and friends in a rally in protest of the bill that has been passed in the House of Representatives.

It would interpret the tuition waiver as taxable income crippling the income of graduate students making them the highest taxed group in the United States (raising their tax by 3-400%). The negatives of such an effect would make graduate school and higher education something that only those who were independently wealthy could pursue.

The effects of losing a large number of our graduate student population would affect students, professors, and inevitably our country.

Please join us in protesting this at Tulane, this Wednesday (New Orleans).

Thanks for your time,
