Raised by working-class parents — Dad’s a construction worker and Mom a practical nurse with a GED — the Hopper sisters excelled in school. Briallen earned a PhD from Princeton and lectures in English at Yale, barely earning enough to pay her student loans. Johanna, 20, gave up on college after a year. Debt-free, she works at a bakery for slightly more than minimum wage. They write about their very different choices.
