Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe American university students are beginning the new year with a mountain of debt. There is now $850bn owed in outstanding tuition costs and paying back the money is an ongoing challenge. Two in every three American students graduate with loans outstanding, and the current debt is 11 times the total it was just two decades ago. The average yearly cost of a bachelor's degree in the US is between $5 000 and $43 000, compared to just over $5 000 in Canada and $1 300 in much of the European Union. Experts say a college degree is an important investment, but in a difficult job market it is an investment that could take a lifetime to pay off. Al Jazeera's Tom Ackerman reports.

This summer, only one in four US teenagers will hold a job, and in major cities like Chicago, the rate is far worse. In addition to job losses from the economic crisis, thousands of young people are out of work this year as a result of cuts to Chicago's youth employment programs. For young people trying to pay for college by working over the summer, finding a job is almost impossible. In this video, the first in a series on youth unemployment in Chicago, young people speak out about the lack of summer jobs and social inequality. The next videos in the series will focus on joblessness among young graduates, and the effect of budget cuts on young people. Music Credit: Oddisee - Boston
