Increase salary threshold for student loan repayment

Petition Details

We believe that the salary threshold for paying back your student loan should be increased. We think what is considered a good wage has changed because, for example, increases in minimum wage.

Additional Information

You can be already paying it off as a recent graduate on 25k. The original justification for student loan repayments was that they were only to be paid back when a graduate earns a good wage in line with having a degree, we believe this is no longer the case. We think there is an intergenerationally unfair burden on graduates
