I am 26 with a BA in Communication that put me 30k in debt. I spent 4 years after college looking for “professional work” while working multiple part-time jobs that would not give me full time hours in order to avoid having to give me benefits (i.e. health insurance & vacation pay). I was lucky enough to earn a Graduate Assistantship that has gotten me back in school but loan collectors still call me and my family seeking to collect on my loans from my time as an undergrad. Should I tell the freshmen I teach that this is what they have to look forward to? I am the 99%

I’m a college student and reading stuff like this just depresses me
