With $30k In Student Loans and No Job, Pennsylvania Man Joins Other Graduates By Leaving U.S. to Avoid Debt

Faced with crippling student loan debt, a Pennslyvania man chose to leave the United States to avoid paying on his balance.

Chad Albright told the York Daily Record that America had become a prison and that he felt he had no choice but to leave in 2011. At the time, Albright said, he had been searching for a job for two years but was never hired.

Albright graduated in 2007, at the start of the Great Recession, and was often told in interviews that companies were going with an individual with more experience who had been recently laid off from another job.

Alright said he worked full-time at a local pizza place after high school in order to save up to go to college and, at age 25, he enrolled at Millersville University in Millersville, Pennslyvania. Being older than most students, Albright said he was ostracized by his classmates and found it difficult to balance coursework and continuing to work full-time.

Once the bills began piling up, he took out student loans and thought he would find a job after graduation and be able to pay the loans back.
