Spotted in the K-Mart parking lot in Laramie, Wyo. They have a faculty permit. Goddammit.
For those of you who don’t know, the reason our tuition stays low at the University of Wyoming is because out-of-state (and even foreign *gasp*) energy companies pay taxes on the minerals they extract here. This revenue finances the large majority of our education. Our education is heavily subsidized, along with the salaries of professors, buildings, etc.
So in summary, it’s quite a socialist system. So Professor, how’s that state job-y, taxpayer subsidy-y thing working out for you? This sticker actually screws up Sarah’s quote because there’s a “g” on the end of the words and it says “you” versus “ya.” It’s the academic elitist version of folksy!
