Student Loan Debt CRUSHING Millennials, And The Economy


THE WALL STREET JOURNAL IS
REPORTING THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME MORE THAN HALF OF THE
STATES IN THE US ARE REQUIRING STUDENTS TO PAY MORE INTUITION
FOR STATE SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES COMPARED TO
WHAT THE GOVERNMENT IS CONTRIBUTING TO THEIR TUITION. THESE AGAIN ARE
GOVERNMENT-FUNDED, THEY ARE NOT PRIVATE SCHOOLS. HOWEVER HISTORICALLY THE
GOVERNMENT HAS STEPPED IN AND PROVIDED ENOUGH FUNDING SO
THEIR PORTION OF THE TUITION ACTUALLY OUTWEIGHS WHAT THE
STUDENTS PAY FOR THEIR TUITION. FOR THE FIRST TIME STUDENTS ARE
PAYING MORE INTUITION TO ATTEND THE SCHOOLS COMPARED TO WHAT THE
GOVERNMENT IS CONTRIBUTING. WHAT THEY FOUND WAS THAT ALL OF
THESE STATES ARE USING THE FUNDING IN ORDER TO PAY FOR
THEIR STATE MEDICAID PROGRAMS AND ALSO FOR STATE EMPLOYEES
RETIREMENT AND HEALTH CARE SERVICES. BUT THEY HAVE NOT INCREASED
TAXES TO ACCOUNT FOR ALL OF THESE THINGS. THE LAWMAKERS REFUSED TO PAY THE
TAXES OR RAISE THE TAXES AND GUESS WHAT HAPPENED? WE HAVE THE
EMERGENCE OF REGRESSIVE TAXES AND IN THIS CASE TUITION SERVED
AS A REGRESSIVE TAX. TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE OF HOW
MUCH THIS IS IMPACTING STUDENTS, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
AVERAGES HERE. THE AVERAGE TUITION FOR A
FOUR-YEAR PUBLIC COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY WAS ABOUT $6572 AND
2017, UP FROM 4784 IN 2008. SOME MIGHT THINK IT’S NOT A BIG
DEAL BUT THINK ABOUT IT, THESE ARE PUBLIC COLLEGES AND
UNIVERSITIES. THESE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THE
AFFORDABLE OPTION FOR KIDS WHO GREW UP IN UNDERPRIVILEGED
SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS. OR IN GENERAL FAMILIES THAT
HAVE ECONOMIC STRESSES. A LOT OF PEOPLE MOVED TO VARIOUS
STATES BECAUSE THE SYSTEMS THERE IN TERMS OF HIGHER EDUCATION ARE
BETTER THAN THEY MIGHT BE. IT IS A REAL PROBLEM AND THIS
HIGHER EDUCATION AND THE FACT THAT THE COST KEEP ESCALATING,
IT CREATES THE DIVIDE THAT WE ALREADY SEE BETWEEN THE RICH AND
NOT RICH. WE ALL KNOW WHAT WE ARE SAYING. BECKETT WIDER AND WIDER. PUBLIC EDUCATION ñ PRIVATE EDUCATION IS NOT
ACCESSIBLE TO ANY OF US. THE LOANS YOU HAVE TO TAKE OUT
TO GET INTO THE SCHOOLS ARE INSANE. YOU CAN GET INTO IT BUT YOU WILL
GRADUATE WITH A LOT OF DEBT. HERE WHEN IT IS PUBLIC
EDUCATION, UNDERWRITTEN BY THOSE OF US WHO LIVE IN THE STATE
SHOULD BE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL OF US WHO LIVE IN THE STATE. THAT IS A CRISIS. IT IS BECAUSE EDUCATION
ESPECIALLY HIGHER EDUCATION SERVES AS A WAY FOR PEOPLE TO
PULL THEMSELVES OUT OF POVERTY. AND WENT ON THE RIGHT WHO MAKES
THESE ARGUMENTS ABOUT PICKING YOURSELF UP TO THE BOOTSTRAPS ñ
IT IS JUST SUCH A DISINGENUOUS STATEMENT WHEN YOU CONSIDER WHAT
THEY’VE DONE TO AFFORDABLE EDUCATION FOR PEOPLE. PUBLIC SPENDING PER STUDENT
DECLINED 24%. APPROPRIATIONS BEGAN TICKING
BACK UP IN 2012 BUT THE RECOVERY HAS BEEN UNEVEN ACROSS THE
COUNTRY WHICH IS WHY YOU HAVE HALF OF THE STATES NOT
CONTRIBUTING ENOUGH. THEY ARE NOT EVEN CONTRIBUTING
AN EQUAL AMOUNT AS THE STUDENTS. AND 2016 STUDENTS AND 24 STATES
PAID MORE THAN HALF OF THE COST OF THEIR EDUCATION IN
PUBLIC SCHOOLS. IT WAS THROUGH A COMBINATION OF
BUDGET CUTS AND TUITION HIKES. SO WE CAN SEE WHICH STATES
PRIORITIZE THEIR STUDENTS WHEN IT COMES TO THIS ISSUE. STUDENT LOAN DEBT DOESN’T SIMPLY
IMPACT THE LIVES OF THE STUDENTS WHO CARRY THAT DEBT, IT IMPACTS
OUR ECONOMY AS A WHOLE. THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO WORN OUT
TETHERED TO A DEBT THAT THEY CAN NEVER GET RID OF. AND THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO
PARTICIPATE IN THE ECONOMY THE SAME WAY GENERATIONS PRIOR
TO THEM WERE ABLE TO. THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO PURCHASE
HOMES OR DEVELOP THEIR LIVES THE WAY THEIR PARENTS WERE ABLE TO. IT IS SAD TO SEE HAPPEN. I DON’T MEAN TO SOUND LIKE
THE SUPER LIB PERSON HERE, BUT THE PEOPLE WHO BENEFIT FROM
STUDENT LOAN DEBT ARE DONALD TRUMP AND ALL OF HIS
BUDDIES. SORRY FOR SEEING THE PROBLEM IS
DONALD TRUMP, BUT IT IS. THE STUDENT LOAN COMPANIES, THEY
ARE THE ONES WHO ARE BENEFITING AND AS WE HAVE SEEN THEY ARE
INCREASING THEIR ABILITY TO TAX THOSE LOANS, THEY HAVE CHANGED
THE ENTIRE WAY THE STRUCTURE IS WORKING. AND THE WAY THAT THEY CAN GO
AFTER YOU. THEY CAN BE BRUTAL. THOSE STUDENT LOAN COMPANIES,
THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE BENEFITING FROM THIS. TO SEE IT HAPPENING WITH PUBLIC
EDUCATION, IT IS HEARTBREAKING BECAUSE IT IS THE WAY MOST OF US
SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET UP PASS INTO HIGHER EDUCATION. IT IS NOT JUST PRIVATE
LENDERS. OBVIOUSLY PRIVATE LENDERS CHARGE
THESE HIGH INTEREST RATES. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ALSO
GIVES OUT THESE STUDENT LOANS WITH LOWER INTEREST RATES, BUT
THE INTEREST RATES ARE HIGHER THAN WHAT THE BANKS
RECEIVED WHEN THEY GOT THAT BAILOUT MONEY. IT IS JUST SOMETHING TO THINK
ABOUT. HE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE THE FUTURE
OF THE COUNTRY. IT SEEMS AS THOUGH ACTIONS ARE
TAKEN OVER AGAIN TO MAKE IT LESS POSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE TO CREATE A
GREAT LIFE FOR THEMSELVES. TO GIVE THEM ACCESS TO
EDUCATION. SHOULDN’T EVERYONE HAVE ACCESS
TO EDUCATION. WE ARE THE RICHEST COUNTRY IN
THE WORLD AND WE CAN’T GET ACCESS TO EDUCATION TO ALL THE
PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE? IT’S JUST WRONG.

  1. SpikaLim says:

    So glad I live in Sweden. But then again, I can say that after just about every single news story on this channel.

  2. Kelly Fortune says:

    Meanwhile, Germany and other European countries are offering free college to Americans. Other countries can afford to provide us free college but our own country can’t? Let that sink in, other people in other countries can and are willing to pay for our education.

  3. kane says:

    I pay 300 euros per semster in germany and 0 for healthcare, i get around 700 euros from the state per month and (i gotta pay only have back half of it )! and 20 hour max. a week jobs for 14 euros per hour ! you even get money for an appartement ! 😊 america greatest country thoo

  4. Belynda Reardon says:

    it's been bad for a while. but it has gotten really bad lately. I had to actually roll my loans into my mortgage once. and now state govt has ran it so far into screwing education that most of the state of Kentucky public school has walked out.

  5. Diego says:

    So when people have less money to spend, the economy suffers. Here I thought trickle down solved that problem by giving corporation and the rich a fck ton of money.

  6. Satria Kurniawann Djaenal says:

    I said it before, I'll say it again. Student loan debts is only a problem in USA. What the heck is up with that?!

  7. John Dyer says:

    The power is really in the hands of the students. If they would cut off the funding for the schools, this insanity would stop. The schools take in millions from student loans and what do the students get for the money? A worthless piece of paper sending them thousands in debt. The problem is there is no accountability for the schools. The can charge whatever they want without any effort to make sure students get a job with that degree. So basically the students are getting ripped off while the schools live high on the hog. This insanity will continue as long as students continue to bankrupt themselves to pay the schools.

  8. FireBomberBassist says:

    So easy to prey on people desperate to get ahead believing higher education is guaranteed to be a way.

  9. Mike V says:

    Education is a human right.

    What millennials need to do is organize a political coalition (occupy wall street) and press a case against the federal government at the United Nations.

  10. Matthew G. says:

    Who knew going to college for things that are need and traking out loans that you can't pay back was and still is a bad idea. Higher education will only get you so far and the job fields that need workers are the trades and or less glamorous jobs that involve hard work. Something that most people going Into college will find out when it's too late and complain "there's no jobs or no one hires me out of school it's not fair" that's life and the world it doesn't owe us anything.

  11. Will Wright says:

    An Educated society = A society that is harder to control. That is why Republicans want to remove all facts from public discourse.

  12. sjninja says:

    There is no reason why people must attend colleges. I feel as though if you are going to go to college go with a plan. Its your choice to take out that money that you dont know if you will be able to pay back. while I think that there should be caps on how much schools should be able to charge but college tuition is on you. can't afford it go to a trades school in stead. yes, trades are hard work but thats why you pay that plumber $75 per hour just to come to you.

  13. William Wellham says:

    To many fools are going to school when they can not afford it. I joined the Army at 18, got deployed a few times and got out at 26. Now I am a Nursing student with zero tuition fees thanks to the GI Bill, there are options available for everyone to take advantage of.

  14. Mirquella Santos says:

    But, but, but the orange pedo was going to remedy all of that. White millennials overwhelmingly voted and supported him so don't whine like sorry bitches now. You wanted pedophilia and pedophile Trump so you got exactly what you voted for.

  15. XyCrosier says:

    Observe the individuals here complaining about the existence of useless degrees that do not pay well (in particular, they complain about the individuals who pursue these degrees), attempting to play the "personal accountability" card to avoid addressing the real issue. By logical extension of their own arguments, they would suggest we should not have any educators or public defense lawyers in this country, simply because these are occupations that do not pay well, and the prerequisite degrees for those occupations do not offer a reasonable return on investment (for those particular areas of practice). They are feeding the system of predatory capitalism, throwing the interests of the general population under the bus for love of profit-driven motive.

    These people seem to approach the problem with a punitive mindset, rather than an empathetic one. Take a moment to examine the differences in national crime statistics and recidivism rates between the US prison system, and the Scandinavian prison systems if you're unaware of the consequential implications of these mindsets.

    As the idiomatic expressions go:
    Knowledge is power
    Money is power
    Why advocate a system that strips the majority of citizenry of either?

  16. Ronel Bassatt says:

    Republicans don’t like an educated people, and hate people that rise up from poor to rich. That’s why they r dismantling the education system.

  17. VotelessOrc497 says:

    Hmm maybe they should invest in a actual college degree other than gender studies and whatever else you leftist believe that denies biology and a future. If you cant get a job that pays for your debt thats in your major, then thats your own stupidity. x3

  18. MrSubsound90 says:

    We're mortgaging our future today for current needs putting more and more peoole into perpetual debt.

  19. Annatar says:

    I'm a millennial (25 years old) and I graduated with about $40,000 of student loans and I couldn't get a job with my bachelors degree. But that wasn't an excuse for me. I worked 3 jobs as a janitor, factory worker and pizza delivery driver for a total of 100 hours a week. I was very frugal with my money and saved heavily and in one year, I paid off all my loans.

  20. dwight hodge says:

    Can someone say cancer beginning ad

  21. Troy Shea says:

    "Just get a job and pay for your debts you lazy bums"! The conservative answer to all of your finnancial problems.

  22. Cockcheese Maghee says:

    The real problem is most of you are too stupid to graduate college with a useful degree in the sciences so you get these useless social justice degrees designed for morons like yourself then wonder why there is not a demand for your "skills". While you spend your time in newly created social justice idiot courses "learning" about transgenderism and how to hate straight white men, the intelligent among us are getting real degrees and paying back our student loans. Most of you go to college and take these easy social justice course just so you can say you are in college and are therefore intelligent while the truth is you are immature crybaby snowflakes who will never grow up

  23. samiproductions says:

    Student loans a scam.

  24. apostate001 says:

    Baby Boomers have been crushing the economy for decades now. Its all about shifting the money to Boomers with payments due after those parasites die off. Boomers don't care. They are parasites. Never has a generation inherited so much yet bequeathed so little.

  25. A Swaney says:

    Ugh, we are regressing, people. Progressives in office are vital at this point, or we'll sink.

  26. Two Sheds Johnson says:

    Stop subsidizing tuition costs with government guaranteed loans, then you'll see market influences bring tuition costs in line with what real demand would be without the subsidies.

    The more government interferes with market forces, whether it's subsidizing education or health care or manipulating interest rates to make home mortgages more "affordable", then you won't get true price discovery. Get government out of the picture and the law of supply and demand will find it's true price.

  27. Mason Reese says:

    Here's some advice kids. Stop pursuing worthless degrees. As an employer when I see a Liberal Arts major its an automatic no hire. I know they will be a crybaby, lazy, and a troublemaker. Like it or not, my
    Chamber of Commerce colleagues agree.

  28. rmm112788 says:

    I am work as an engineer which used to be a field that ensured you a great life. I had to live with my parents for the first 2.5 years out of school because I could not afford rent/mortgage payments on top of my student loan debt. I have since (nearly 4 years at my company) been able to purchase a starter home and bought a more reliable used car when mine died. I know that I have nothing to complain about because I have been privileged but I owe nearly as much in student loan debt as I do on my home and that is nearly $1000 a month that is not going into the economy. With that additional money I would be able to renovate my home, buy a car, take a vacation, etc. all things that are more useful than a CEO getting another helicopter or taking a month long vacation to the French Riviera.

  29. Jay Win says:

    Every entry level jobs out there, people in mid level and senior level apply those jobs. Companies raise their standards and not willing to train a new grad. It make harder for new grads to get their first jobs and to pay loans. If the government cut education funds and colleges increase tuition, they should offer 1 to 2 % interest rate, the current rate is even higher than the auto loan rate. Clearly the government do a favor for service loan companies, because they fund loans and collect money.

  30. Robert Vysther says:

    Let's face it.  We are slipping into a dictatorship pure and simple.  If we don't elect decent people into government this will happen and we will all have to pay.

  31. Burt Backarack says:

    They should go to school for something useful to get a job you flat chested broad

  32. Drew McDowell says:

    The quote is, "It's as dumb as trying to pick yourself up by your own boot straps".

  33. Alberto Romero says:

    I regret not doing better in high school and getting accepted into college or trying to transfer out of JC. However I am not thousands of dollars in debt. The only debt I have is for camera gear that I use to make side money and transition into a full-time career and I can pay it off reasonably soon with my day to day job. I am financially better off from not having gone to college but I still feel like I missed out on something.

  34. Ecléctico Iconoclasta says:

    US=Shithole country

  35. Kiki says:

    Well vote the democrats,give them the mandate they needed to move america into the century we are living in cos the only thing republicans has done is to move the nation backward ,they even want slavery back so pathetic and this is supposed to be 20 18, terrible, they are still thinking like people from the dark ages.

  36. L Bird says:

    If we're talking about fixing education, IMO, we really need to look at the costs of college. Why is it we need to pay all of these college professors or to build all of these college halls? These days, we can record college lectures and put them online. Professor gets paid once to do all of his/her lectures, we're done with them. All that salary doesn't need to be accounted for year after year in tuition. And if it's all being done online, you don't need all of these lecture halls you have to raise money for or pay to maintain. IMO, college tuition could greatly drop.

    You could have TA's that could do most of the work for answering student questions and/or administering tests.

    Let schools with this method be able to give you accreditation.

    Why can't the cost of college be a fraction of what it is now? Then we wouldn't be talking about how much the state contributes or how out of control student debt is. What if I could go to Berkely while living in Texas – at home, saving on dorm costs too?

    I know that kind of kills the college "experience" and atmosphere. But are we talking about learning subjects or socializing?

    And if it costs were greatly cut, if we did want to buy college for all, it would be a LOT more affordable. Way cheaper than the estimates of $60-$75 billion/year.

  37. Spring Time says:

    Wake up people, it's not a race war, it a class war where color doesn't matter, you must continue to be an indentured servant to the rich for the rest of your lives. Indentured Servitude
    was created during freed slavery times to keep them from having the ability to raise enough money to leave the plantation, now it has spread to everyone.

  38. lukus black says:

    Any and all education should be free from the government. The cost argument is pointless because the higher your education, the better your job possibilities, and the more taxes you're going to pay as a result.

  39. Haiti LeBlanc says:

    If you move to Canada 🇨🇦 or Australia 🇦🇺 do you have to pay student loans

  40. Essard Audinett says:

    Every one need an education to serve their country.
    Education should be free, And it would be easy for the Government, if the education system was not a hustling.

  41. Mat S says:

    where im from you get paid to go to university

  42. KOSAMA GAMES says:

    There's a lot of work in tech industries like programming for data analyst and Front End development but nobody studies for that lol

  43. DeadFishFactory says:

    Maybe don't go to college for a fluff degree?

  44. Jeff Oliver says:

    An educated populists is far better than an armed populists to fight a totalitarian regimes.

  45. BeckyMatthew32572 says:

    It is going to cost me $400,000 to get my undergraduate (without living expenses) and for medical school, all of which is at Virginia Commonwealth University. You might say: "the huge salary doctors get will make it easy to pay it off." That is far from the truth.
    I don't know what I will do when I star my residency only being paid 40,000 to 60,000 and i have to start paying back this massive loan. Do I take out more loans?

  46. Main Man says:

    Yes..this is one of the the core sources of socioeconomic division. It IS the design. It's how to lower social mobility and keep the rich getting richer and everyone else fighting over the scraps lol They also do not allow students getting federal student aid to get nutrition assistance and some other federal help making it even more expensive to be a student.

  47. Pokemonguy16RS says:

    Y'all need to watch some Dave Ramsey. This is not the only debt in the world.. educate yourself further and never borrow from private lenders that charge 18% interest rate.. though the federal loans I would minimize the amount since it's a fixed rate of 3-4% that will not go any higher.

  48. K Lel says:

    Dumbass millennials getting degrees in basket weaving gender studies and expect to get a job. Adapt with the market or die, cucks!

  49. Andrea Kae says:

    I went to a private school for a few years then transferred to public in another state. My private school was $30,000/yr back then (8 years ago) and tuition is the same today. The public school has gone up about $500/semester every year.

  50. Jacob Lindberg says:

    They are all becoming private. That's why so many new buildings are going up on student dollars.

  51. maggie shaw says:

    I love school and learning, its basically my only way out of the economic turmoil my family lives in. It’s a nail biting experience every semester when I’m scrabbling to make up the $2000 tuition, yes $2000 a semester at a community college. I can’t even save enough for a car and school at the same time. I feel stuck.

  52. ShyGuy83 says:

    College is a cancer.

  53. Aconitus says:

    I thought the point of going to college was to get a job you enjoy that is also high paying so you can live a lifestyle that is self sufficient. But now some colleges cost more than a house so what is the point for people now? Most could save in a few years and build a tiny house or or medium sized house for way cheaper than going to a college… college is just starting to become meaningless for the middle class and lower…

  54. Faisal Amin says:

    Do not take student loan…

  55. Melissa H says:

    Awww…come one. They can't raise taxes. Making rich people richer ALWAYS helps everyone! Oh, wait…

  56. Biasly Unbiased says:

    Educated are generally not REPUGNANTKLAN VOTERS,so of course Conservatives want to destroy education!

  57. aarondavid826 says:

    4 year college is a waste of time and money unless you are very smart and can be a doctor or engineer. I got a 2 yr applied science degree at my local Junior college and have a great job. I paid my own way by working part time at Home Depot

  58. Biasly Unbiased says:

    ANOTHER WAY THE TAX BREAKS FOR WEALTHY ARE SCREWING POOR PEOPLE IN THE LONG RUN,HARD!

  59. cupoftestosterone says:

    There is a bonanza of things you can learn on your own these days FOR FREE, although employers are really snobby and want you to have a degree a lot of times. I would say that the absolute hardest part is the fact that it's hard to figure out the overall structure of what you should learn, like a ski-map. But soon, computers are going to be so fine-tuned that you will be able to learn almost anything online comprehensively and for minimal cost, aided by artificial intelligence. We're just, unfortunately, not there yet, even though it's quite possible already.

  60. nomadic hunter says:

    Paying thousands of dollars to get useless degrees, and know they these dummies want others to pay their debt. Hell no bitches, pay your debt.

  61. Connor Rath says:

    college is a scam

  62. Regina Vega says:

    The American dream is dead

  63. Barry Lyndon says:

    Did someone place a gun to these people's head, making them borrow money?

  64. Keeper Nod says:

    Obama bailout the banks, and gave the middle finger to students.

  65. crazyincolorado says:

    It hurts businesses as well. They can’t always find qualified workers to hire.

  66. Cory Olson says:

    I went to college in iowa got a degree in psychology couldn't get a job that area because without being a interne with no pay for some unspecified amount of time. So now I work at walmart working y way up that ladder and I have this incredibly stupid bill that I have to pay every month. So while I did learn many things by going to college I didn't get the payoff all my teachers in high school said. I would have been better off just going to work for a company and trudging up the scales like I'm doing now.

  67. Mireille Lebeau says:

    You can be a wonderful human being without a full time job, Don't be harsh on yourself!

  68. Courtney GingerDriver says:

    I had to stop my college education because my tuition became $2200 more per semester than the financial aid covered. I qualify for "full" financial aid. Not anymore. I can't afford $2200 twice per year for school. So, I have to stop halfway through.

  69. dookdawg214 says:

    It is millennials who have made college insanely expensive. The younger generations just run off to college like robots without much thought, thus exploding demand. They scoff at trade jobs like electrician and plumber. And they lack the resourcefulness to start their own small businesses. They all think they're going to go enjoy a fun college life for four years and then get an easy management job when they get out. Well, the thing is, college isn't for everyone. The world still needs electricians, plumbers and auto-mechanics. The world needs hairstylists and shop owners. If you get out of college and don't have a high-paying job, then you calculated poorly. You were'nt among the top in your field and yet you went that way anyway. It's not society's job to bail you out. Nobody bailed me out when I struggled through my early life.

  70. Nate P says:

    Don’t go to college

  71. kelarly says:

    Education isn't worth it anymore. With many graduates complaining about not being able to get a career in their field, what is the incentive for going to college? You can get fine, high paying jobs without a degree. Education is not a right!

  72. Ye Old Metal Head says:

    As long as us tards outnumber you fancy peeps, we will ensure that this system fails.

  73. DOCTOR LOGIC says:

    Fake and phony bull shit, pandering to poor minorities for viewers. No one cares a about poor people. Blame Trump! Blame dumb people who take out the loans,

  74. xJoexRipx says:

    People have access to education, you said it yourself, student loans are crushing millennials. Obviously they have access. I am a millenial (sadly), I got scholarships for having a high GPA in a tough field. I have one year left until I get bachelors in EE, and I have $0 debt. Either pick a degree that is worth while (not communications/gender studies…..), or dont go to college. Act intelligently, don't whine and complain about your irresponsible use of money.

  75. Keith Hogan says:

    6500 a year is 26000 for a degree. not that much money. after college I made about twice that per year

  76. Brenda Cavanaugh says:

    I went to Mott Community College for 3 years and Baker College for 2 years, both of Flint, I studied Medical Transcription, medical Billing and coding, and Medical assisting. Graduated with an Associates degree and the doctors all in Flint only pay $10 dollars an hour with no benefits. They pay you more to go work for Wal-Mart in our area. It makes me sick because I owed $34,000 dollars in student loans when I was finished and only made $18,000 a year. I definately did not get my money's worth out of going to college.

  77. waverly2468 says:

    I still watch your show, but you guys are totally out to lunch. The problem of high tuition didn't start with Trump or student lenders, it started with the universities. And one reason universities charge so much is because of pension costs. UC has a $15 billion unfunded pension liability. Calif. spends less on higher education because it is going broke with CalPERS and CalSTRS pensions. But you guys are pension crisis deniers. You guys support the greedy public sector–especially school teachers. So too bad–college is expensive, whether it's a private or a public college. If you can't afford it, THEN DON'T GO !!

  78. ihartevil says:

    you mean like how cenk keeps crushing my dreams and making it so i get held back and cant really keep hope anymore

    none of you have any idea what the hell is happening with my life right now it got way worse and i have nobody right now because everybody who loves me either left TYT or you just never cared in the first place

    thx for this ha bisky vid this is why college is a waste of time and money pretty much like my entire life has been

    if i could see marcs drones i might feel a bit differently but he hasnt had those around probably because of robby saying he didnt want them near me not understanding at times i need them other times i dont care or dont want them around and right now i need those drones

  79. Michael D. Gutierrez Animation says:

    Pay your own damn college.

  80. waverly2468 says:

    The young Turkish Taffy is falling into their own bear traps. You guys want unlimited immigration and free healthcare so of course there's going to be less money for higher ed.

  81. Kami no shippai says:

    Why did I just get a university of Miami Oxford ad for this video???

  82. 007thematrix007 says:

    and you don't even know if you'll get that job based on your college course after graduating, ugghhh…..smh

  83. Reid Schaper says:

    Just imagine if you were married to Ana, how quickly you guys would probably end in divorce because she is so hard to deal with I would imagine on a husband wife level. she just acts like such an entitled bitch

  84. Reid Schaper says:

    Also I don't think I should pay more in taxes to cover some dumbass students tuition

  85. Reid Schaper says:

    This anna bitch is something else look at those evil eyes

  86. Tosh J says:

    Please anyone who reading this and haven't apply to Universities don't do it. Wait a year or two then decide nothing wrong with working and deciding what to do then go in a program realize you hate it and dropping out and owning a lot of money for it.

  87. Sean 3756 says:

    Medicare and Medicaid and social security and Obamacare were started by Democrats and they never rose taxes to account for those programs which created a higher tuition for students and who do we blame?

  88. cultusdeus says:

    Public spending per student declined between 2008-2012 with uneven recovery. Those are the Obama years if you're paying attention.

  89. waverly2468 says:

    College is not an entitlement–you have to PAY for it. Sorry, but that's the new reality. Quit blaming Trump. Bill Clinton made student loans non-dischargeable in bankruptcy.

  90. Damn Surfer says:

    lol student loan debt has been a problem since the 90's

  91. you're right says:

    this student debt bubble is going to burst and send the country into economic turmoil and then those kids who got degrees won't be able to get jobs either because no one will be hiring. oof

  92. Johnny Tramain says:

    Never sign any contract or borrow any money unless you completely understand what you are legally obligating yourself for. It seems many students never ask "how am I going to pay this loan back?

    College today is a business. It is no longer an institution. Millenials are a colleges best friend because millenials are arrogant and think they deserve things with any work. The degrees you chase are worth shit and even if there are jobs in these fields, sooo many others are chasing the same job. What's this do? It gives the employer the power to pay less. This really is just a case of supply and demand. This crap is really knly effecting American kids cause theyre fat, lazy, and entitled. The Asian and Indian kids aren't having these problems. Those kids are still getting jobs cause they are going after dentistry and being physicians. Blame trump all you want but that just shows how ignorant you really are. There are tons of jobs out there but these lazy fat kids don't want to put in real work. Keep voting liberal though. Let me know how that works for you. Lol!!!!!

    Colleges have no incentive to lower tuitions because the federal government is subsidizing/guaranteeing your student loan

    Don't take out a loan at such a young age! Do research before signing anything. College is just too expensive to justify.

    The student loan debt is not the only crisis.  When you add child support payments on top then problem is worst.  With  both programs you cannot discharge in bankruptcy. Why is the government imposing this restriction on our future population.
