'Credit card slaves' protest for reform.
TEMPE AZ -- Colleges are profiting from deals with Bank of America and others on marketing credit cards to students, reports the New York Times.
These unethical marketing deals can lead to a 'debt trap' for many students who are not financially savvy, and are already suffering economically.
At Arizona State University, students set up a table on campus in 2008 to warn of the danger of debt and urge limits to on-campus marketing.
Colleges should be prohibited from selling or sharing students' information with banks for credit card marketing purposes, at the very least unless specifically and clearly authorized by each student.
