    This is my first time hearing that, interesting.

    My kid had a paid internship over the summer that paid two grand a week 12 weeks in all
    8 bucks an hour is minimum wage and doesn't require a degree or student loan debt?
    What does working for peanuts have to do with college debt?

    No college debt thank God and not even from the beginning. I think the importance of college is overstated. College is useful to some people. It is a means to a desired end, BUT if that puts you into crippling debt, better not to go. Open a book and read...that is pretty much college.
