My first job was at a Dunkin Donuts. After I served in Iraq as a corpsman, I used the GI Bill to attend community college in Cali. I’m fortunate to have graduated from top programs in the U.S. to be an ER doctor.

“Low skill workers” have academic skills, just not the support.
The GI Bill is a godsend. It gave me the time to learn how to learn. Many of my college classmates had college funds established.

People don’t want to work “low skill jobs” but when you’re living check to check you do what you have to do to survive.
In April 2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced Futures for Frontliners, inspired by the G.I. Bill making 625,000 essential workers in Michigan eligible for free college that served during the pandemic. freep.com/story/news/edu…
