Our most recent Occupied Media virtual teach-in is with Tamara Draut of Demos. Tamara is the author of Strapped: Why America's 20- and 30-Somethings Can't Get Ahead, which she presciently wrote before the financial meltdown. Tamara continues to work on issues relevant to issues effecting 20- and 30-somethings, including contribution to a recent report entitled: The State of Young America: The Databook, The Poll and The Stories. Tamara's recent commentary has focused on the Occupy Movement: Occupy Colleges and Restoring the Dream for the 99 Percent.
Our interview with Tamara focuses primarily on the pressing problem of student debt, but we also discuss the Occupy Movement more generally.
