Debt is a huge problem in the United States. According to a recent study, recent college graduates have an average of $25,000 in debt each and the total student loan debt is over a trillion dollars (which is more than total credit card debt). With so much debt on their backs, these college graduates are seeking jobs to help them pay it off and move forward with their careers. The only problem is, those graduates aren’t finding jobs.
