Higher Education Reform Initiative

Knowledge is Economic Power!

The Method is The Message!

 

Higher Education Reform Initiative Fare Learning Provisions:

 

The terms Fare Learning and Fare Pay shall be interchangeable in this HRI except as noted.  This statement only applies to this Initiative even though content and structure of Fare Learning may be similar at times to Fare Pay.  Please note, that when  HRI and BRI are used together, they shall be referred  to as Fare Way.

 

Provision A: Collection and Distribution of Fare Learning Funds

Section A1.  

Sub Section I. 

  1.     Collection and distribution of Fare Learning funds shall come from the same 20% fee/tax pool as Fare Pay funds; but the 20% fee/tax for both the Fare Learning and Fare Pay programs shall not be more than stated in total and/or together; this 20% fee/tax can only be increased via voter driven initiative action or legislatively directed initiative action — either way, it must always be decided by the Electoral Conscience The formula shall remain the same as Fare Pay, which is based upon gross revenue alone of both private and public operations, whether for-profit or non-profit, a contribution of 20% shall be a mandatory fee/tax paid into a separate Fare Learning Fund, but only after Fare Pay is fully funded.  This 20% fee/tax and separate Fare Learning fund is fully defined and explained in the Provisions of this Initiative.  Fare Learning funds shall be used for no other purpose other than Fare Learning  qualified full or part-time STEM related education, and related research or training expenses.

Section A2.  

Sub Section I. 

  1.     Ninety days prior to the Fare Pay start date, which shall be the date 90 days after its full enactment, Fare Learning and Fare Pay funds shall be paid into separated funds established by the California State Treasurer for those sole purposes; and, those moneys shall be collected by the California State Franchise Tax Board.  They shall in turn have authority to collect and disperse those funds to the appropriate agencies and according to the regulations established by the HRI: the Higher Education  Reform Initiative. 

  2.     The budgets of these two respective agencies shall be increased as needed by current state budgetary means and not directly from the Fare Pay fee/tax fund, nor either administering or set aside fees; also, if necessary, in the professional judgment of these two respective agencies, they may charge the agencies receiving Fare Pay distributions a surcharge of no more than 2% — this surcharge can only be changed by electoral, legal and legislative means; they may also directly collect fines as allowed under current law for enforcement of this Initiative.  The 2% surcharge is in lieu of the $2.00 per $20.00 formula to administer and maintain individual Fare Pay worker accounts; the 2% surcharge is intended as an inter-agency and inter-organization offset.  Again, the Fare Pay Fund shall have priority over the Fare Learning Fund.

Section A3. 

Sub Section I.

 

  1.     The California Employment and Development Department shall have authority to disperse and enforce the proper use of Fare Learning funds in cooperation with the California State Franchise Tax Board through plans of their own design and in concert with educational institutions and training programs. 

Sub Section II.

  1.     Both of the aforementioned agencies will have authority to enforce Fare Learning regulations through  any school, any training program or any student denial of Fare Learning participation, fines and/or reassignment — adjudication, in its various forms, will be handled by existing and evolving legal apparatus or courts of law. 

Sub Section III.

  1.     Thereafter, Fare Learning funds shall be drawn from the same source as Fare Pay funds which are assessed and collected monthly by the California State Franchise Tax Board by the end of the first week of the following month and shall be placed within the California State Treasury separate Fare Learning Fund and made available first to the EDD agency, and then dispersed and/or transferred  to all involved agencies on an “as needed basis”.  Just as in the entirety of Fare Pay, all of the mentioned and specified agencies shall have authority to investigate the proper accounting and use of said funds when they become available after full Fare Pay funding.

Section A4.   

Sub Section I. 

  1.     At the appropriate time, accounting costs of 10% shall be deducted from the Fare Learning $20.00 set aside, leaving the remainder solely for individual student accounts — regardless of attendance hours, this set aside shall not be less and shall stay in place on a monthly basis of no less than 20% fee/tax of $100.00 in Fare Learning tuition.  The State Franchise Tax Board shall have legal authority to oversee the disbursement of this ten percent from the State Treasury Fare Learning Fund, just as they will with the Fare Pay Fund, and insure that these administrative moneys be legally used by the authorized local and state agencies who shall administer those Fare Learning obligations; all involved agencies shall enforce the same rules stated throughout this Initiative.  After enactment only, further negotiations shall be subject  to either electoral or legislative approval — the Electoral Conscience shall supersede the legislature as determined by either judicial or initiative measures.

Section A5. 

Sub Section I. 

  1.     This 10% ($2.00) of the maximum daily per worker Fare Pay $20/00 set aside shall be directly added to EDD’s, or a local level agency’s, budget to off set the cost of administering the Fare Pay and/or Fare Learning Program.  It is important to note here that Fare Learning and Fare Pay accounts are independent of one another even for the same individual; therefore, this same 10% ($2.00) will in effect be assessed twice for same person for however long they draw Fare Learning up to a total of 40 hours per week for the maximum allotment time of four years — it must be noted that this maximum time can span a relative longer number of years as long as it stays within the time frames established of per day or per week of actual class attendance or its equivalent.

Sub Section II.  

  1.     EDD’s, or a local level agency’s, current budget shall not be lessened as a result of this $2.00 per employee and/or student addition except as may be determined either by electoral or legislative approval.  

Sub Section III.

  1.     Along with the regular fee/tax disbursements, the California State Franchise Tax Board shall distribute this $2.00 per employee and/or student proportionately to EDD, city, county and other government agencies according to the number of allowed Fare Learning students in their area to help defray collection and distribution expenses, and shall be used solely for the administrative purposes of this Fare Learning Initiative; and, shall be added to, but separate from, funds to be used solely for the purpose of the Fare Learning $10.00 per hour Base Line Tuition and the remaining Fare Learning benefit of up to $18.00 per 8 hours of work.

Section A6. 

Sub Section I. 

  1.     EDD, and their authorized subsidiaries, shall distribute the Fare Learning  $10.00 per hour Base Line Tuition directly to all qualified Fare Learning students on a weekly basis according to the number of verifiable in-class hours of actual attendance in person or online, up to forty hours per week, in the most efficient manner of their own design. 

Sub Section II.

  1.     Also, this distribution process may be aided by local governmental finance departments at EDD’s authority and direction; they may also enlist private and financial institutions willing to participate under EDD’s authority and direction according to all Fare Learning related regulations and applicable current laws.  Such private and financial institutions shall be defined as employment agencies, financial organizations, schools and unions

Sub Section III.

  1.     Again, the State Treasurer and related departments shall oversee with legal authority the funding requirements for costs of accounting and distribution in all those said areas.

Provision B: Balanced Funding of Fare Learning

Introduction for Funding Justification and Mechanisms.

It is important to point out at the beginning of this Balanced Funding Provision — within both fee/tax supported Initiatives for education and employment reforms — that the following funding justifications and mechanisms are only illustrative overviews to maintain funding flexibility.  They are specific enough, though, to establish long term effective and efficient funding foundations.  Therefore, be it recognized that any number values being used here are only temporary, for those number values will change; increasing exponentially as they will with the maturing of a Free Market guiding the evolution of Economic Freedom.

Sub Section I. 

  1.     If it were based upon California’s 2014 GDP/GSP of 2.3 trillion dollars alone, a 20% fee/tax of that amount would be 460 billion dollars; non-profits account for roughly 5.4% of total state GDP or GSP, so they cannot be counted beyond that 5.4% in this equation.  As a point of reference, they do account for 264.9 billion dollars in total revenue for 2013 — 20% of which would be added to fee/tax funding pool.  It is very important to remember that the Fare Way fee/tax will be based on more than just GDP alone, it will also be based on what is not included. 

  2.     At this writing, the total for wages within California was $933,384,951,700, with a  civilian work force of approximately 19,000,000.  So, a projection of 20% at that amount is a starting point  of not only a fee/tax base, but also those numbers would not change from that level, with this exception: they will change upward immediately upon full Fare Way enactment; and, as gross income increases over time, it will directly increase the availability of Fare Learning Tuition at the appropriate time.

  3.     Combined Local and State gross revenue for California is 446.9 billion dollars, of which roughly 269  billion dollars are  paid in local and state government salaries.  Other benefits are not included in this estimate nor in the estimates above. 

  4.     The  illustrative number overviews immediately above, in these Balanced Funding equations, are useful to lay important funding groundwork.  However, the most accurate and effective funding mechanism for the purposes of  funding the Fare Way Initiatives will be the 20% salary percentage from the total of gross revenue of all for-profit and non-profit organizations within California.   

  5.     As can be nearly determined at this writing, the proper funding amount would be determined by the following equation: The sum total of sub-paragraphs 1 and 3 is: 2.897 trillion dollars, of which we take the average salary percentage of 60%, that results in: 1.738 trillion dollars, then taking 34% of that number, results in: 590.9 billion dollars — this final number will be the beginning Base Line Funding amount for first Fare Pay; and then after full employment, Fare Learning Tuition.   It must be stated at this point that there will also be other sources of gross revenue that are not utilized here because they cannot be fully identified for the purposes here.  Both of the Fare Way Initiatives will in fact increase gross revenue across the entire market spectrum once this newly added infusion of direct and indirect income come into account permanently. 

  6.     Average annual salary within California is estimated at $52,000.  Since one half of this amount is below $52,000, roughly 90% of that lower half will fall within the boundaries of Fare Pay becoming an additional or primary source of Base Line worker income, therefore building a reliable and stable economic foundation for STEM based higher education.

  7.     In order to compensate for any possible subtraction which may occur at the various stages of full Fare Way funding, Fare Court will be available as a controlling pressure release and/or safety valve in that regard.  While this will be but one major function of this extremely important Initiative, this additional use also serves to point out Fare Court’s  many roles in dealing with any socio-economic issue — it will be indispensable in this role as a funding mechanism and moderating influence.

Section B1: 

Sub Section I. 

  1.     Funding of Fare Learning shall be based upon the same mandatory employer Fare Pay fee/tax  of  20% on $2,000.00 or more in weekly generated gross revenue — by using the word “same” we explicitly mean that the 20% fee/tax shall not be increased except for strictly voluntary programs offered by employers.  This funding rule will apply whether the income producing operation is headquartered in California or not; also, only the income generated within California shall be subjected to this fee/tax for the funding of Fare Learning.  In comparing BRI to HRI, funding of Fare Learning shall be secondary to the funding of Fare Pay, which is first priority.  In recognition to the vast importance of full employment, the preceding declarative statement shall apply until such time as the economy of scale of both BRI and HRI reach an economically feasible balance; any such future changes shall only be decided by the Electoral Conscience.

Sub Section II.  

  1.     Just as in Fare Pay, any funds withdrawn from state coffers or treasury, which must be used to fund the Fare Learning program, shall be considered an interest free loan and be repaid back into the State Treasury within two fiscal years.  However, if it is clear that a deficit is developing after that full two fiscal year period, then either a cut back of Fare Learning and/or Fare Pay hours or an expansion of debt free Fare Pay and/or Fare Learning funding shall have to take place by means of electoral initiative or legislative action.

Section B2: 

Sub Section I. 

  1.     The foundational Fare Learning Tuition formula will be as follows, this will also apply to any verifiable variation of STEM education system and/or technique: One class time hour= $10.00; One class time day of 8 hours= $80.00; One class time week of 40 hours= $400.00.  Levels and/or multiples of those rates will vary according to verified length of actual class time hours in attendance, or a provable variation thereof, with an accredited  college/school or technical training program. 

Sub Section II.

  1.     Except for those mandated by federal law, there shall be no deductions from these rates except as stated elsewhere in the Fare Way Initiatives — employers may pay these federal or other deductions as a discretionary benefit with no affect upon a students overall Fare Learning income limitation — and the Fare Learning amounts shall be considered net tuition at the local or state level. 

Sub Section III.

  1.     Divided by proportional in class hours, and based on the same total daily amount of $20.00  for each $100.00 of Fare Pay fee/tax contributed per qualified student per day, the remaining set aside amount of $18.00 — after the $2.00 per $20.00 accounting fee is deducted — must and shall be used solely for each student’s  individual, permanently and personally owned account for health, retirement and vacation.  Divided by three or some other division decided by the account owner — though, no less than one third of this $18.00 must be applied to health care.  The student will have a choice of their other two thirds fund management by certified professionals who will maintain this personally owned account.  Should a student not make such a choice, then the California State Treasury shall maintain said accounts in a plan of their own design and add a  small surcharge fee of no more than three percent to cover their related accounting costs. 

Sub Section IV. 

  1.     The accounting fee of no more than 10% per that daily $20.00 amount will only pay for the accounting and dispersing services necessary for each employee/student to receive their Fare Learning/Fare Pay salary.  The 20% set aside will serve as a variation of state income tax withholding, but  no one will receive a state tax refund as a result of this variation of mandatory withholding.  This shall apply only to the Fare Pay/Fare Learning fee/tax program schedule, having no affect upon existing or regular federal and state income or sales tax. 

Section B3:  

Sub Section I. 

  1.     Similar to Fare Pay, the Fare Learning base line rules below shall apply — the primary exception here being that Fare Learning must not begin until state wide full employment is achieved.  It is officially declared within this Initiative that the state unemployment rate shall be 4.1 percent or less to be considered full employment.

  2.     An eligible worker who is receiving a Fare Pay salary from a given employer will be able to draw Fare Learning tuition pay until such time as the tuition pay is concluded after the maximum four year period, as defined above, of in class attendance time, technical training or its verifiable online equivalent.  The only exceptions are the rules regarding the salary cap of any and all cash income including the combination of Fare Way payments together.

Sub Section II.

  1.     Again, after full employment is achieved, and at a given employer as stated above, there shall be two Fare Learning students for every $5,000.00 in gross revenue up to $50,000.00 in weekly gross revenue — it must be noted that regardless of gross revenue above the  $50,000.00 mark, an operation will still be able to employ the same amount of students and/or workers below the $50,000.00 mark. 

  2.     Below the $5,000.00 mark in weekly revenue, a small business which is certified by EDD and federally, locally or state licensed shall still be able to employ one full-time Fare Way worker or two part-time Fare Way workers regardless of meeting the $5,000.00 mark as long as they generate legitimate revenue, therefore, at the point of full employment, that same worker, or the two part-time workers, shall eligible for Fare Learning Tuition.

  3. At the level beyond  $50,000.00, this previous Fare Pay employment and Fare Learning rule     shall change to one Fare Pay worker for every $10,000.00 in weekly gross revenue — the 20%  fee/tax contribution rate shall still apply regardless of the amount of gross revenue.  Daily  fluctuations in revenue aside, it will ultimately depend upon annual gross revenue generated, but will still be based upon this basic weekly employment formula in any event — the same proportional Fare Learning rule applies as well, guided only by the number of allowed funded Fare Pay workers after full employment is reached.

  4.     In regard to Fare Learning at all levels of fee/tax gross income, the worker or workers in question will be eligible for the Fare Learning opportunity — to repeat, this will only take place after full employment is reached through Fare Pay and continuing “traditional” ways of job income. 

Section B4: 

Sub Section I. 

  1.     Since enactment of Fare Learning is related to the enactment of Fare Pay, and will be dispersed in a similar manner to Fare Pay, this same rule will apply: the disbursement of Fare Learning funds will have no effect upon federal withholding, disability insurance, unemployment insurance or welfare of any kind, and the benefits listed after federal withholding will of course remain in place until such time that reforms are enacted at the federal or  state level via initiative or legislative means.  

Sub Section II. 

  1.     As stated above, employers may voluntarily, and/or as an additional benefit,  pay any of these employee related costs without penalty or reduction in the employee’s overall Fare Learning or Fare Pay income nor affect its related income limitations. 

Sub Section III.

  1.     There shall be no penalty of any kind in regard to co-habitation, marriage or any “roommate” type of situation, meaning:  living arrangements shall have no affect upon Fare Learning accounts or amount of their Base Line Benefit/Tuition.  Again, any employer may offer additional, penalty-free material support to an employee for household support: this support may express itself in ways to counter household lessening or loss of disability via material support that is non-cash in nature — this shall remain solely at the employer’s discretion.

Sub Section IV. 

  1.     Fare Pay employment rules, and therefore Fare Learning rules, will have no effect upon Federal regulations except as permissible through the lawful authority of federal agencies, judicial or legislative bodies. 

Section B5:  

Sub Section I. 

  1.     In regard to Fare Learning as well, the Fare Pay fee/tax funding schedules shall remain in place regardless of gross revenue amounts generated by any private or public income producing operation as long as they are officially certified and declared as for-profit or non-profit by the governing authorities — any private or public income producing operation who violate the terms of Fare Way can be fined up to an additional 10% of their gross income after adjudication by the governing authorities based upon the Provisions herein and any applicable laws.

Sub Section II.

  1.     Fare Learning shall have no effect on the following:  Current compensation, retirement and savings plans will still remain in place for non-Fare Pay employees, management and owners  because they will be subject to the market forces of competition in more direct ways than Fare Way workers — this preceding statement is declared as an essential part of this Reform.  

  2.     Furthermore, it also means that Fare Pay/Fare Learning workers who may have been receiving benefits or pay prior to the Fare Pay/Fare Learning change-over can continue to do so based on agreements between them and their employer, subject only to Fare Way related income cap and/or limitations. 

  3.     Any declarative statements herein will always be subject to the Provisions which define allowable Fare Way inclusions.  The primary  exception  will of course remain to be the income limitation in being  eligible for this education benefit to begin with,  again, such Fare Pay or Fare Learning employees will be subject to related income limitations until said limitations are changed through initiative or referendum mechanisms. 

Sub Section III. 

  1.     Fare Learning Provisions — just as in Fare Pay —  shall not be affected by deflation, but can be adjusted to inflation through electoral initiative means only.

Section B6: 

Sub Section I. 

  1.     The funding rules established in this Fare Learning Section B6  shall be the same as the funding rules for Section B6 within Fare Pay, being no more than 20% of gross income for both Fare Way programs.  Any individual exceptions will be clearly noted at the proper time.  Again, the major exception being Fare Learning cannot be instituted until full employment is reached first.  The funding mechanism shall remain as follows: 20% Fare Pay Fee/Tax shall be begin at the amount of $2,000  in weekly gross income by increments of $20.00 per $100.00 above the aforementioned $2,000 until the 20% mark of $1,000.00 is reached at $5,000.00.  The starting  amount of $2,000  shall apply to small operations only, whereas, defined larger operations shall pay the 20% on the entire amount below $5,000.00.  This shall be the rule for any local and/or state certified for-profit or non-profit private or public benevolent/business operation.  Again, the fee/tax rate for both Fare Learning and Fare Pay combined shall not be higher than the 20% mark.

Sub Section II. 

  1.     Thereafter, at levels of gross revenue below the first $50,000.00 in weekly gross income, this Section rule shall apply: for every $1,000.00  in weekly gross income, 20% will be contributed from every employer which will finance $80.00 in Fare Pay Wages and  $20.00 for Fare Pay related benefits on a daily  basis — or weekly, if that is the extent of gross income — by extension, this shall apply to Fare Learning at the proper time.  In other words, 80% for salary and 20% for benefits and distribution fees.  This 20% of the aforementioned $1,000.00 will fund two Fare Learning students at $10.00 each per in class hour of either up to eight in class hours per day of no more than forty in class hours per week or some variation there of.

Sub Section III.  

  1.     Regardless of Fare Pay fee/tax levels, an employer may personally pay more without penalty of any sort to themselves or their workers in order to encourage and reward a full or part time employee in regard to Fare Learning as well.

Sub Section IV

  1.     There shall be no prohibition against any employer  offering  any kind of Fare Pay  based or regular employee encouragement or incentive benefit over and above Fare Pay and/or Fare Learning.  This shall include funds for experimental equipment and/or supplies given to a Fare Way salaried employee engaging in either applied and basic research or for-profit production.  Additionally, the employee or the employer shall not be penalized for offering a negotiated share of profit as a result of production and/or research until such time as the Fare Way employee reaches the Fare Pay or Fare Learning income limits.

Sub Section V.  

  1.     It is declared and recognized that any employer will probably need to do such enhancements and/or direct material incentives to remain competitive; therefore, such employee enhancements must be legally encouraged and sanctioned only within the framework of Fare Way Initiatives as stated herein.  The above rules will remain in place as long as the established fee/tax income limitations or requirements are met.

Section B7:

This section as it applies to Fare Pay (BRI) shall not apply to Fare Learning (HRI) except as stated within this entire Initiative; and, by extension through indirect similarities.

 

Provision C: Enforcement and Promotion

Declaration and Reaffirmation Statement

For clarification within Provision C, it is necessary to restate one rule and introduce another at the beginning of this Provision:  Until such time as Fare Learning reaches synergistic economy of scale — meaning Fare Pay is providing Baseline full employment along with all other forms of employment at 4.1% or less; that is: anyone who wants a job of their choosing, has a job of their choosing — or as close as possible depending upon demand.  And, it is only after Fare Learning  has met this first level, then having met its primary purpose of STEM education, will other majors be funded by Fare Learning.  This secondary status regarding “other majors” shall be determined by the Electoral Conscience.

Section C1. 

Sub Section I.

  

  1.     Permanent residents of California, defined as those who can prove three consecutive years of residency in three  legally documented ways to EDD shall be allowed to participate in HRI. A fixed time period of no more than four years at a maximum of forty “in-class” hours per week for the sole purpose of education and/or training related to scientific, technical, engineering or mathematical disciplines.  Elective courses — those courses outside of a STEM major — will not be covered except as directly related to STEM research or subjects.

Sub Section II. 

  1.     The same basic hourly pay rules which apply to Fare Pay in the work place shall apply to Fare Learning while a qualified student is attending school or technical training program.  For example, if the student attends qualified courses for 3 hours per day, then they shall receive Fare Learning for those 3 hours; the same will be true for 6 hours, or any number of hours up to 8 hours per day or per week up to 40 hours.  The maximum time of school or training could possibly be longer than four years, but only proportional to the  maximum Fare Pay amounts rated at forty hours per week.  

Sub Section III. 

  1.     Fare Learning education benefits shall be dependent not only upon attendance, but the student must complete and pass the course to continue receiving such benefits.  If the student does not complete a course with a concluding passing grade, then their future Fare Learning benefit shall be prorated for the necessary amount or amounts; or, their future Fare Pay salary shall be prorated for the necessary amount or amounts; or, either a lump sum or scheduled payment plan shall become operative until such time as full repayment is made.

Sub Section IV. 

  1.     This benefit will not be lessened if the student is working: whether receiving Fare Pay, other wages or if they work for themselves.  Scholarships will also not lessen this benefit except in regard to the maximum allowable income cap governing any type of cash or wages regardless of their source.  See Section C2, Sub Section II, Paragraph 1. for more clarification.

Section C2. 

Sub Section I.  

  1.     Fare Learning benefits will not apply to those staff related employees attending the same institution for which they work or already earning the maximum allowed income; nor shall anyone who is  employed and receiving paid educational benefits from an employer be eligible if those paid educational benefits are equal to or more than Fare Learning Tuition.  

  2.     Fare Learning Tuition must be verified  not only by attendance records and random inspection by appropriate authorities; but, if determined as necessary by those appropriate authorities at any time, they may also demand certification exams of participating students designed by academic, for-profit or non-profit experts as well as qualified journeymen — and certainly masters — in any STEM related discipline.  Lastly, this Fare Learning benefit may be used only once, even if the span of school time transcends the allotted four years. These safeguards are proposed to guide, protect and shepherd the Economic Freedom and social integrity of The People.

Sub Section II.  

  1.     Just as the Fare Pay rule applies in Business Employment Reform, personal income amounts shall come into consideration in order to receive  Fare Learning Tuition: if the student has an income of  $40,000.00 prorated at 5% per $1,000.00 to $60,000.00 or more, they will not be eligible for Fare Learning once reaching the  $60,000.00 or more level. 

  2.     The above rule shall apply if a student has their tuition paid by a family member, friend, inheritance or trust dictated by the  Fare Learning Sixty Thousand Dollar Rule maximum. 

  3.     To clarify and to eliminate any confusion between our three companion Initiatives, the Fare Learning Sixty Thousand Dollar Rule shall be defined as follows: There shall be no formula effecting Fare Learning, outside of this Initiative, which supersedes the $60,000 income cap rule.

Section C3.

Sub Section I. 

  1.     Starting at 18 years old — or younger if graduated; or older, even if retired –adults of all ages and genders shall be eligible for this HRI benefit provided they qualify by all of the rules  stated within this Reform.  The only exception being, an age related means test shall determine place in the Fare Learning line: the young shall go first; age determining the order of receiving this benefit in order to promote the greatest longer term benefit to society.

  2.     It is declared at this point within this HRI Reform and, for that matter, the BRI  and PDI Reforms as well, that the opportunities presented will apply to the disabled or handicapped who are  mentally and physically capable enough to work in a functional, productive manner — even if constrained to only certain or specialized kinds of employment which require STEM education — physical age shall apply here as well.

  3.     Length of time for the use of this Reform benefit will be a total timeframe of four years. Meaning:  that timeframe of four years may cover a much longer period of time, as long as the four year formula rule  is strictly followed.  Any change in that formula shall only be settled through the electoral initiative process.

Section C4. 

Sub Section I.

  1.     Paid internships offering academic  credit and “on the job” certified experience shall be allowed — and hopefully encouraged by the powers that be — but will not be eligible for Fare Learning except as dictated by Fare Way income limitations outside of such programs. 

  2.     Those workers receiving such employer provided benefits as stated above will still be eligible for Fare Learning at the appropriate time, whether after or before HRI is instituted following full employment. 

  3.     Whether the worker is a Fare Pay employee or not shall have no bearing on this Fare Way or Fare Learning benefit.  The only exceptions will of course be income related and the strictures noted in other Provisions within this Reform. 

The Method is The Message!
