Students Protest Debt as Student Loan Debt Collectors Make a Billion


Dozens of students were arrested this afternoon at the Sallie Mae headquarters demanding forgiveness of student loans. The protest comes after recent reports show $1 trillion in student debt burdening borrowers.

The high amount of debt is good news for debt collectors, however. A Bloomberg report shows that debt collectors made nearly $1 billion in commissions from aggressivley pursued student loan collection efforts.
