She quit “without lining up a new job”
This is just crazy.
A teacher who quit her job is now struggling to make her $200 a month student loan payments.
But she is just one of the people the mainstream media has made the face of the student loan restart, which began yesterday, after a three and a half year freeze.
Parvanae Abdi, without lining up a new job, “decided to give up [her teaching career] in search of employment that would allow her to pay rent, bills and student loan payments.”
Abdi, who has a graduate degree in education, “doubts she will be able to meet her loan obligation,” according to NBC News. Her LinkedIn shows she has not worked as a teacher in five years, and even then that was as a substitute teacher.
Another is Patrick Donohue, who quit his 20-year career with AT&T along with his wife, a dental assistant. The 67-year-old took out loans for his kids and “still works part-time to bring in extra income.”
