I am 25 years old, I have degrees in Environmental Studies & History. I could not have gone to school without taking loans. I now have $75,000 from a state university. I pay what I can, but it is not enough. They call me everyday but I have nothing new to say. It has been almost four years since I graduated. I have had 17 different jobs, and three unpaid internships in that time. I jump from job to job looking for better pay, better hours, and experience in hope it will lead to a full-time career with benefits……I do not see it coming soon. The psychological weight is crushing and defeating at times, but I know it could always be worse. I know there are people everywhere that are worse off than me, but we are all in this together. So as I start another work week at two jobs, without a day off, without health insurance, without a living wage….you are all in my thoughts.
We are the 99%
