Generation Debt: Why Now Is a Terrible Time to Be Young

Generation Debt - Anya Kamenetz Quite the depressing read! Things sure are different than they were when I was college age! I was able to squeak by with no student loans or credit cards. That didn't mean that my degree got me a good job, though.. That is what the author is saying about today's world. The jobs that are available are mostly mcjobs, part-time with low pay and no benefits. Most of them are not permanent, nor do they offer a fast-track to the corner office! Those in the corner office sometimes can't afford to retire, so those good jobs that haven't disappeared from our economy aren't open...

A good book to read before you decide to take out a huge student loan...
