What would happen if we all stopped paying our student loans? Many of us are drowning in student loan debt, and our low-paying jobs, if we are lucky enough to have them, don't even begin to cover the interest payments.
On May 1st, a labor strike is planned. But what if it was also a strike against student debt? How long would they be able to punish us if we all stood our ground? The cost of an "education" in this country is the cost of a lifetime, how can we regain our freedom from the mistakes of our youth?
