What steps should I take to protect my financial future as a young uncertain American?

Hello, I'm Currently attending college in the beautiful state in Florida, I am a communications major. However I'm worrying a lot about the future. After graduation ill have about 24,000 in student loans even with about 4000 dollars in various grants per semester. In 2021 according to the algorithms it will cost me 232 dollars a month for 10 years to pay back my student loans. I saw firsthand what the great recession did to my family. What are some basic steps/tips so when the next crash comes that I do not end up like my family did in 2008-2010? Especially when it comes to organizing at a workplace to demand to join a union, better pay, etc.
