As a first generation college student, I’ve seen firsthand how much some of my FGLI peers have struggled with getting a job after graduation. For many without connections, the process can take up to 5 months. I believe expanding the DSA to post graduation would give students a much needed cushion. Personally, I would use the DSA to register Latinos to vote with a local organization while looking for a job post-graduation. This would give me much more flexibility in finding a job that I actually enjoy instead of being forced into the first thing I can find because of financial insecurity. Furthermore, getting rid of the student income contribution would give students wider latitude with how they spend their DSA money, and encourage students to perform even more meaningful work on campus as well.
