"College is so expensive that most poor people can't go unless they join the military. Then, if they make it through alive, they get to come home and earn a degree. It's like 'The Hunger Games,' except instead of winning fame and wealth, you end up with a shitty office job."-@Cate_Gary

Pretty much -- college tuition has skyrocketed at exponential rates putting education and the chance for a good job out the reach of most poor and middle class people, dooming them to a life of poverty. Hunger Games indeed.
