‘Working Your Way Through College’ Now Basically a Myth

A few weeks ago when we talked about the guy with 13 kids, I mentioned how I liked the idea of my kids “working their way through college” like my parents did. Many of you were quick to point out that this was no longer feasible, that “working your way through college” now means ‘working your way through college and then also spending the next decade or more paying off your student loans.’ Which, come to think about, is exactly my experience.
