A writer’s thread about student loans is getting popular lately on twitter. After posting about her student loan, Lacy M. Johnson, initiated a discussion about student loans and people started to share their struggling paying them out. Most people did share that they have been paying twice or triple the amount they initially got.
The people who responded to her post basically tell the same story over and over again. They have been trying to get the loans paid, but after years of payments they still owe the same amount or even more.
