OMG: I'd like some proof as to whether or not the current FEDS exec has taken the time and effort to eliminate frivolous spending and unnecessary staff to find money to add to the budget, before deciding that they're going to charge us $4.74 more a term. Have they bothered to find money elsewhere before looking in our pockets?

For the record, I'm not against a fee increase if it is justified. However, there is money being paid for some things that are not returning on the financial investment. I'd like a more constructive and effective student union but so far the reasoning behind this fee doesn't seem like any real step forward.

  1. The more outrageous the action, the more extra credit FEDs members get for justifications they dream up, didn't you know? Thanks a whole lot for giving them something else to speak to at an interview for that Ottawa job.

  2. Their complete inability to do any sort of effective marketing will certainly be solved by throwing more money at their poster-makers.

    1. Those "poster-makers" are close to 10 part-time student job opportunities on campus you're talking about that Feds provides. Want to make sure folks know that.

    2. The fact that they're job opportunities is irrelevant. I don't want my money to go to subsidize other students to do useless work.

    3. The fact that they're student jobs doesn't excuse their incompetence

    4. 2a, that is a really stupid way to look at it. Sure, they are part-time jobs for students, but if they were in any other workplace that wasn't a student union, they would be fired for their incompetence. Instead, they keep their jobs because a student union could NEVER fire students, even if they are awful.

      TLDR: If you want the safest job in the world, get a job at a student union
