A Change.org petition to get rid of student loan debt for millions of borrowers hit 830,000 signatures by Saturday evening and that number keeps growing by the hour.
Founder of StudentLoanJustice Alan Collinge started the petition in March. It’s been picking up steam as many Americans still find themselves out of work and out of options in the pandemic.
“This lending system is a joke,” Collinge said.
Collinge believes eliminating federal student loans – roughly 85 percent of all student debt – will jump-start the economy.
