Predatory loan shark lending rates that specifically target SMs are wrong, 36% interest rates that borrowers have no chance of paying back are wrong, but people wouldn't use these places if they had other valid options...we could be solving one problem and creating another...

I thought all the Payday lenders were off Limits because they were nothing more than Loan Sharks... Charging massive interest rates...

What's wrong is we do not pay our soldiers enough to live off of. I'll be the first to admit I used them when I was in I got paid after taxes about 375. Every 2weeks with car payment and insurance I might of 150 left now add haircuts and gas really didn't have much left. Being 21 and trying to go on a date was damn near impossible. Dinner and a movie cost you 50-75 easy. We need to pay our soldiers a decent paying wage my last year in the military I might of cleared 8k as an E4 over 4.
My ex girlfriend son in law was an E6 over 8 and he made 36k his last year in. They have a lot of benefits free chow if your single on post housing and such but it doesn't swing the cost of everyday needs.
