So, how exactly is the 1% making this young woman pay for being part of the 99%?
I am 21 years old.
I am currently $15,000 in student debt and climbing each day.
When the economy tanked, Chase Bank sold off all of their federal student loans to a collection agency. Said collection agency made me pay back on my student loans while still in school at $450 a month. I am currently reaching the end on a 6th month deferment and will have to resume payment soon.
I have stopped going to college. I am too scared to rack up more debt and have no faith in the economy to find a job if I graduate.
I am currently living with family and working at a diner, part-time and minimum wage.
I am the 99%
