Oklahoma State has announced it is offering free tuition for all its students who can’t find jobs in their field.
The move comes amid a national debate about the lack of jobs for college graduates.
The announcement comes on the heels of President Trump announcing he was cutting the top tax rate for middle-class families.
“We’re going to keep our promise to our students,” said Steve McCarley, the university’s vice president for student affairs.
“We’re trying to keep them in Oklahoma.”
McCarley said he hopes students will come to Oklahoma because of the job opportunities that will be created.
He said the university is working with businesses to offer new opportunities.
The announcement comes amid national debate over the lack, and the potential for, jobs for middle class families.
Earlier this month, the president of the National Federation of Independent Business told The Washington Post that Trump had not kept his promise to middle-income families, citing his tax cuts for businesses.
Trump has said that he will keep his promise not to cut taxes for businesses that create jobs.
McCarly said that when businesses find the money to create jobs, they’ll be able to hire the workers they need.
“That will create jobs,” McCarly said.
