Many American workers are speaking out against President Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, calling it a bad idea for the nation.
Several Pennsylvania manufacturers were interviewed in a response on Fox News on Saturday.

“It’s not going to affect the people that are here, the people that are actually out doing all the work,” Jim Davis, a supervisor at the Donsco plant, told Fox News.
Biden’s “going to help the people in the bigger cities because that’s what [he] wants,” he added.

When Biden was asked about whether the forgiveness plan was unfair, he simply walked away. “Mr. President, is it unfair to people who pay their student loans or chose not to take out loans?” the reporter asked.

Kevin Wasileski, another worker at the Pennsylvania foundry featured by Fox News, said if students signed a contract, “they should pay for it.”
“Why should I pay for somebody else’s college?” he griped.
Many will be thankful for the loan dismissal, but many Americans will realize that the limited student loan forgiveness program does not help them. It is limited to $10,000 per person and $20,000 for those who received Pell Grants.
The limitations are also for those making less than $125,000 per year and will be taxable income in some states, making the impact far less than Biden’s claims, as well as infuriating those who have worked hard to pay back loans.
