Also, as so many of us know these lenders provide such invaluable services to students. For starters, they have done an excellent job of creating an indentured educated class. It sure would be a shame to see that go away. So, uh, yeah . . . I hope they stay in the picture because I like how these jobs of which they speak are ruining the lives of millions of Americans (when you think about the co-signers on these suckers, the number of those who are imprisoned by their ruthless debt collecting tactics grows enormously).
We need to continue writing, emailing, AND organizing on behalf of the indentured educated class. I begin my training in Seoul on Tuesday, but I am mad as hell that I can't be advocating and making a living wage in my own country. But if I can't pay the bills in the U.S., what good would I be to others in need?
But I am encouraged that we're being heard on multiple levels in D.C.
I am anxious to touch base with Senator Sherrod Brown's office. So far, I've only had one conversation with the Education staffer there. I know that many of you would like to know what's going on with the private loan debt swap proposal. I am too.
