Repaying your student loans can be a serious challenge. In fact, around 20% of federal direct student loan borrowers in repayment are at risk of defaulting or are already in default.

The AFL-CIO released a video today showing firsthand the devastating economic impact the Trans-Pacific Partnership could have on communities across the country.
