Former and current college students calling themselves the “Corinthian 100” say they are on a debt strike and refuse to pay back their student loans.

Dieffenbacher, who works in collections for a property management company, said she was allowed at first to defer her loan payments, but now should be paying about $1,500 a month that she can’t afford.
