It is easier to hate the wealthy when machines replace our jobs than when a foreigner takes our jobs. We will have more civil unrest against the upper class with machines replacing people than with jobs going overseas. Be on the lookout for distractions from serious issues like food, clothing, shelter. Expect more discussions about gay marriage, 'in god we trust', affairs, pledge of allegiance, school vochers, etc....
Tell them the app delivers their company email.
They won't be concerned because they 'do nothing wrong' at work and won't think about the fact that the company will know everything else about them as well. They'll assume it is just internet surfing, long phone calls, and texting that the company wants to track when in reality it is everything, a drag net of employee data.

What is the median salary, divided by total cost of education, one year and five years after graduation? That is really the main thing a prospective student needs to know. Everything else is window dressing.
Correction, this might be what the student wants to know, but this is definitely what the government needs to know. After all, what bank loans out money with slim chances of getting the money back?

The lesson is: use your vacation. You may not get a chance later.
I can easy one up that and drive the point home. My ex-father in law never called in sick or took vacation. He died at 48. The paycheck he got for the unused vacation time had no taxes taken out. His wife who died two years later had to pay a ton in taxes because of that. On his death bed, I showed him pictures of a recent vacation I had and he wished he had done more of that than work. Who wouldn't? And since you never know when your last day is take the time now if you can.

I know I'd love to write code as a kid to battle other players.
I learned most of my programing as a kid by picking apart other code. I learned on a trs80 loading up basic games and then in my teenage years, tweaking code for BBS sites when 1200 baud was awesome.
