I observed parallels concerning my individual knowledge and that of the latest op-ed author Mitchel Jurasek (“Alaska has a second pandemic it desires to deal with: The mind-drain,” Jan. 29). I went to West Significant and then remaining Alaska for 4 yrs to get a degree from Penn State. Upon graduation, I instantly returned in Alaska for many of the motives Mitchel outlines as his explanations for seeking to remain below.
Not like Jurasek, I did not experience I was entitled to a superior-having to pay position and someone really should get chaotic generating it. I marvel who he feels should do this for him? Authorities? I located I needed the government’s assistance when I returned just after university. My very first step was applying for food stuff stamps. My 2nd phase was a federal government task in the General public Wellbeing Company. Fact examine: It was hardly ever a superior-shelling out career. This was in 1973.
Potentially currently, large-having to pay government jobs are the agenda of the public “service” unions. Jurasek may possibly have a great probability of his dreams coming real, as the campaigns of our elected politicians are bankrolled by people exact same unions and the payback could be individuals significant-having to pay work. This method isn’t proper and will at some point finish in financial disaster if it isn’t transformed.
