New Millionaires Tonight….

The NBA draft is going on tonight making for several new millionaires. It’s no wonder the kids will not stay in college and graduate. To do so, with their degree, they would probably start out at a 50 to 60,000 dollar a year job, if they can even find one. So if a kid is a good basketball player, why get the degree? The only thing, the kid may think he is good, but if the coaches and general managers in the pros think differently, then the kid has lost his scholarship and lost his chance at the college degreed job. The fast food stores don’t pay all that well, so they are taking a big chance declaring for the draft….Here’s hoping they all get big paydays…..Some are going to be disappointed, huh? Well, that’s life….Millionaire or fast food worker…Nah, I’m kidding…There is plenty in between…And personally, I see the fast food worker lots more than I do the millionaires…You?
