Companies Garnish American Wages Due to Massive Credit Debt

garnished-wages-money-peanuts-debt

Some of you may be unfamiliar with this practice where companies garnish American wages due to massive credit debt. A report published by NPR and ProPublica earlier this month (September), shows that the effects of American debt accrued during the economic recession continues to impact borrowers into the present. According to the piece, credit companies are garnishing the wages of ten percent of Americans between the ages of 35 to 44. For those unfamiliar with the term ‘wage garnishment,’ it means that the lender takes a fraction of your salary regardless of your say and pays off some of the debt with it.

The report provides the first countrywide data set on wage garnishment in America. Read on to find out what effects this practice is causing on the U.S. population. Read more ›
