Talking Money with PSU Votes

loanz

With 53% of recent college graduates either jobless or underemployed, the economy is a lighting rod topic for young voters in the upcoming election. Tonight, Penn State has the opportunity to sift out fact and fiction when it comes to the government’s role in the dollar signs in our bank accounts.

From 8:00-9:00 p.m. in Heritage Hall in the HUB, executive director of Student Aid, Anna Griswold, and professor of Labor Studies & Employment Relations, Paul Whitehead, will be teaming up with PSU Votes to present “Employment and Student Aid: How the Economy Impacts You.”

The night will include non-partisan discussion on everything from student loans to the rocky job market that may make paying those student loans back a bit more difficult. By focusing on the economy, PSU Votes hopes to give students a more informed stance on the money behind the politics for when November 6th rolls around.

If you can’t make it to tonight’s What’s At Stake? event, it will also be streamed live on WPSU. You can also follow PSU Votes on Twitter (@PSUVOTES) or like them on Facebook.
