Madison has always gouged students

I was a student way back at UW and even then, many decades ago, the good landlords and businesses of Madison gouged the UW students: in housing, food, and just about any way they could. They saw us (and still do) as sheep to be sheared to their own benefit. Time for Madison's politicians and the students to wake up and call for change. Ald. Wood doesn't seem to realize that it is not in the economic interests of the city and most of its people to come up with affordable housing. That should be pushed by UW but never has (and likely never will be with politicians like him around). This is not an endorsement of his opponent who is unknown on a host of issues.

What about dormitories?

Aren't student dormitories affordable housing? UW does provide several of those. And yet, based on my son's experience at UW-Madison, students often turn up their noses at the dormitory experience, opting for more expensive digs. Thanks for letting me inject some obvious facts into the debate here.
