Job offer for a TRAITOR?!

Folks, every day I check the education job ads on Craigslist, because I've gotten some job interviews for teaching jobs on there, including the job I have now.  I check the ads for Toronto and Hamilton, ON; and Buffalo, NY- the latter because it's still within driving distance and I can legally work there as an American citizen.  Today, in the Buffalo ads, I witnessed something I consider to be an atrocity.  The ad was for a student loan bill collector!  They want people searching for education jobs, many of them themselves fretting about unpaid student loans (many recent graduates are more in debt than a lot of you older folks might believe- me included) to be TRAITORS!

Maybe it's just me.  Maybe I don't understand how badly the CEO of Sallie Mae, with his multimillion dollar income, needs his loans repaid.  But I do think it is just plain bad taste to put an ad like that in the education section.  For heaven's sake, we are educators, not blood suckers!!!!!!

De-rant.

Express!

Are you sure it was Sallie Mae? There are a lot of other agencies and banks that support student loans. I've never heard of anything like this online or in the newspapers etc..  I never completely believe a lot of what I find on Craigslist so maybe there is more to this than it appears.
