When not everyone is upwardly mobile

I saw this discussion on [Plastic]:www.plastic.com today about [Starting The Economic Race 50 Yards Behind]:http://www.plastic.com/article.html;sid=04/03/17/22184414 .

> American youths are forced to choose between good credit and the chance of upward mobility.

One of the points: Society promulgates the model of going to college and then finding a decent job to pay off your student loans. But public-service or nonprofit jobs usually don’t cut it for paying off that student debt.

Source material for the discussion was an article from the Village Voice: [The Ambition Tax]:http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0411/fkoerner.php
