The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has wounded our economy, forced a number of industries to grind to a halt, and put nearly 80 million American jobs at risk. Meanwhile, student debt has soared to an all-time high of $1.7 trillion, even as millions of borrowers face an uncertain economic future.
Student loan borrowers were told that higher education or advanced skills training would pay off in higher earnings and greater prosperity. In many cases, that has not been true and many borrowers have been buried in debt. Entire generations are trapped by student debt.
Full student debt cancellation will put money back in the pockets of 46 million Americans and their families. Research shows that it will create millions of jobs, help local businesses, and boost our economy.
We can make this happen. But first, we must VOTE! We must then let our elected leaders know that we voted to cancel student debt.
