Higher education and its individualistic trajectory to success– to earn through self improvement the right to make demands (which is also to say the ability to leave), has replaced the union and social networks as the safety net for the working class. Pell Grants, the grants given to low-income students, illustrate the focus on bringing low-income people to prosperity by cultivating into them the characteristics of the patriarchy. The glaring absence of support for low-income workers will stand in contrast. If a person can’t support themselves, and jobs with liveable wages require considerable education, the logic goes that they need considerable education. Class disdain prevents feminism from supporting women as workers where they are, and it oppresses men similarly.
