Tri-C students want to hear the candidates talk about job growth after the economy forced them to head back to school.

Lisa Allen said she was a loan processor for Chase Mortgage and was laid off when the housing market crashed.

"I had to make a decision about what I was going to do with my future. For me it was either go back to school or find another job in the business. And at the time it was very difficult," said Allen, who is now a nursing student.

She recorded the debate to watch later because she was still in class when it started and planned to watch with a fellow student, Lisa, who had specific questions she wanted the candidates to answer.

"I want to know what kind of relief we're going to get with these student loans, as far as rates on student loans. Are we going to get a break. Are we going to get a reprieve?" she said.

She also wanted to know about job growth potential after the economy put her in a life-changing position.

"Although the medical field is wide open right now I still need to know, 'Are we going to have a future?'" she said.
