Most of the research and development that has brought us the things we take for granted - medical research, technology, food products, engineering, etc etc - was done by relatively low-paid graduates working long hours in laboratories. Their work leads to big profits for the companies sponsoring the research, as well as benefits for taxpayers. How can this not be a good investment?

That's Ok on that level, but what about the hangers on who get a degree in some worthless weird subject (fine art?). What do they give us? Nothing.

They should all pay.
