This is a truly massive global issue and it hits quite close to me. I've been absolutely lucky in going to university and getting a reasonably promising role in a financial institution whilst studying. The flip side has happened to my brother who at this point is stuck doing menial jobs to pay for food and transport to get to university whilst he collects debt for going. I've had conversations to the effect of 'I actually cannot afford to go to class today or ill be losing another few hundred dollars i need for food' which is not a though ANY young person should have to face. The system needs immediate change for the future of our current society.
