I heard the first part of the series about Millenials not graduating from college. As I listened I was thinking that Fabienne, the college drop out who works seven days a week should be doing okay financially and could not figure out why she was struggling so...until they dropped all the details.

Dropped out in her last year of school after borrowing to attend, so she started off her career with no degree but big debt. Lives in Boston, a huge COL area.
Single Mother. No mention of child's father or child support/lack thereof.

The whole story, which purports to be about why Millenials do not have college degrees was more about one woman with a history of bad decisions. Is she representative of non-degreed young people?
