Generation Snowflake: Percentage Of Young Adults Living With Their Parents Hasn’t Been This High Since 1940

snowflake-public-domainHave we failed this generation of young adults by not equipping them to be able to handle the harsh realities of the real world?  According to the Wall Street Journal, the percentage of Americans in the 18 to 34-year-old age bracket that are currently living with their parents hasn’t been this high in 75 years.  At this point nearly 40 percent of our young adults in that age range are living at home, and many are concerned that this could have some alarming implications for the future of our nation.

In the United States today, more than 60 million people live in multi-generational households, and it is a good thing to have a tight family.  But at some point young adults need to learn how to live their own independent lives, and in millions of cases this independence is being delayed or is never happening at all.

There are many factors involved in this trend.  First of all, there is truly a lack of good jobs despite what we are being told about an “economic recovery”.  Millions of young adults are graduating from college only to discover that there is a very limited number of good jobs available for our college graduates.  So some college graduates are able to secure the types of jobs that they were hoping for, but millions of others are not.

Normally when a recession ends, the percentage of young adults living with their parents starts to go back down.  But this has not happened this time around.  Instead, the percentage of young adults that live at home has just continued to rise

The trend runs counter to that of previous economic cycles, when after a recession-related spike, the number of younger Americans living with relatives declined as the economy improved.

The result is that there is far less demand for housing than would be expected for the millennial generation, now the largest in U.S. history. The number of adults under age 30 has increased by 5 million over the last decade, but the number of households for that age group grew by just 200,000 over the same period, according to the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies.

Another major factor in all of this is the fact that Americans are getting married later in life than ever before and they are having fewer kids than previous generations.

In the old days, people got married young and they set up their own households even if they were dirt poor.  But these days we have hordes of single young adults that are perfectly content to sit at home and sponge off of Mommy and Daddy.

There seems to be a real lack of toughness to this generation of young adults, and many that have perceived this lack of toughness have resorted to referring to them as “Generation Snowflake”.  Over the past 12 months this term has become so common that the Guardian has dubbed it “the defining insult of 2016″…

Until very recently, to call someone a snowflake would have involved the word “generation”, too, as it was typically used to describe, or insult, a person in their late teens or early 20s. At the start of November, the Collins English Dictionary added “snowflake generation” to its words of the year list, where it sits alongside other vogue-ish new additions such as “Brexit” and “hygge”. The Collins definition is as follows: “The young adults of the 2010s, viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations”. Depending on what you read, being part of the “snowflake generation” may be as benign as taking selfies or talking about feelings too much, or it may infer a sense of entitlement, an untamed narcissism, or a form of identity politics that is resistant to free speech.

The phrase came to prominence in the UK at the beginning of 2016, after Claire Fox, director of the thinktank Institute of Ideas, used it in her book I Find That Offensive to address a generation of young people whom she calls “easily offended and thin-skinned”.

Of course there are exceptions.  I have some close friends that are young adults in this age range, and they are extraordinary people.

But overall, we seem to have dramatically failed this generation.  Maybe it is because we tend to baby our children from a very early age, and we want to protect them from danger so much that we never allow them to be exposed to the challenges that they need to face in order to toughen up and mature.

And it certainly doesn’t help that many of our young adults enter “the real world” already drowning in tens of thousands of dollars of debt.  According to CNN, about 70 percent of all college graduates in the U.S. will leave school with student loan debt, and the average loan balance for those college graduates is approximately $28,950.  Paying off student loan debt can be extremely painful, and it can be financially crippling for young people that are just trying to start their new lives.

When our high school kids are looking toward the future, we very much encourage them to go to the very best schools that they can possibly get into, and we tell them to not even worry about the cost.  We promise them that there will be plenty of good jobs once they graduate, and we push them into these loans without even warning them to consider the future implications.

According to a stunning article in the Wall Street Journal, many Baby Boomers are actually having money taken out of their Social Security checks because of unpaid student loans.  So when you go into student loan debt, it can literally haunt you for the rest of your life…

The government has collected about $1.1 billion from Social Security recipients of all ages to go toward unpaid student loans since 2001, including $171 million last year, the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday. Most affected recipients in fiscal year 2015—114,000—were age 50 or older and receiving disability benefits, with the typical borrower losing about $140 a month. About 38,000 were above age 64.

The report highlights the sharp growth in baby boomers entering retirement with student debt, most of it borrowed years ago to cover their own educations but some used to pay for their children’s schooling. Overall, about seven million Americans age 50 and older owed about $205 billion in federal student debt last year. About 1 in 3 were in default, raising the likelihood that garnishments will increase as more boomers retire.

What we are doing is clearly not working, but I am not particularly optimistic that this system will be fixed any time soon.

If you are a young person, you need to have a solid plan before pursuing an expensive college education.  Many young people just major in anything that they want without even considering if it will lead to a good career.  And instead of working hard to graduate in four years, many decide that they want to stretch the “college experience” out for five or six years so that they can party as much as possible before entering the real world.

The real world is a cold, cruel place, and if you start your new life drowning in debt that is just going to make things even more difficult for you.

On a personal note, I want to thank everyone that has supported the growth of The Most Important News.  It is a central news hub where you can find all of my articles, posts by incredible guest authors and many of the key news stories from all over the globe all gathered in one place.  Some technical issues have forced the site to be down for extended periods of time lately, but now it is being migrated to a much more powerful server.  I will not be updating it during the migration, but I should resume a normal posting schedule again very soon.

And I would like to thank all of my readers for making 2016 an absolutely amazing year.  I love you all, and I wish you all the very best as we head into what should prove to be a very “interesting” 2017.

    That’s easy for you to say, Michael. I think you’ve forgotten what it’s like to have to get up and go to work everyday. Perhaps some of your readers don’t realize that you don’t have a job. It’s great that you’ve been successful with your websites, but I think you’re detached from reality.

    • Liberty First

      I would respectfully submit that your are way off on this post. You do not think writing a blog is a job? I have never done it, but can appreciate the intensive research and writing efforts involved. How about the stress of not knowing how many views one is going to get on any given day, etc.? Just saying. I think that this blogger works his butt off.

    One has to live somewhere. Americans are neolocal: they tend to find new places to live once adult. But there are nations where one lives in one’s place of birth lifelong, and guess what: they manage.

  • Mirage

    Good article about the economic realities of today, but i do not agree with the implied thought that millenials are lazy and not tough enough. There are many just like the generation before them that work extremely hard and some who don’t . As a millennial myself I am working 55-60 hours a week and you don’t risk taking a vacation because there is such little job security if you do take a few days off your job might not be there when you return oh and with portable devices you have you usually have to be available 24-7. my parents (baby boomers) enjoyed 3 weeks paid vacation a year and if they worked over 40 there was something called overtime… many government and union employees once enjoyed such great benefits that healthcare was essentially free, sick time was truly a rainy day fund if something went wrong. Show me how many places today pay the equivalent benefits that they did 20 years ago? Workplaces have truly become vial, teamwork is almost non existent and bullying is rampant in many places.

    • Liberty First

      I agree in large part with your assessment. The economy sucks. Big time. I feel for your generation. But you are going to have to deal with it. There is no choice.

            The transference neuroses of liberals:
            Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D. ‘‘The Liberal Mind The Psychological Causes of Political Madness’’ 2006
            pp 328-330:

            The Values of the Liberal Mind

            Like all other human beings, the modern liberal reveals his true character, including his madness, in what he values and devalues, in what he articulates with passion. Of special interest, however, are the many values about which the modern liberal mind is not passionate: his agenda does not insist that the individual is the ultimate economic, social and political unit; it does not idealize individual liberty and the structure of law and order essential to it; it does not defend the basic rights of property and contract; it does not aspire to ideals of authentic autonomy and mutuality; it does not preach an ethic of self-reliance and self-determination; it does not praise courage, forbearance or resilience; it does not celebrate the ethics of consent or the blessings of voluntary cooperation. It does not advocate moral rectitude or understand the critical role of morality in human relating. The liberal agenda does not comprehend an identity of competence, appreciate its importance, or analyze the developmental conditions and social institutions that promote its achievement. The liberal agenda does not understand or recognize personal sovereignty or impose strict limits on coercion by the state. It does not celebrate the genuine altruism of private charity. It does not learn history’s lessons on the evils of collectivism.
            What the liberal mind is passionate about is a world filled with pity, sorrow, neediness, misfortune, poverty, suspicion, mistrust, anger, exploitation, discrimination, victimization, alienation and injustice. Those who occupy this world are ”workers,” ”minorities,” ”the little guy,” ”women,” and the ”unemployed.” They are poor, weak, sick, wronged, cheated, oppressed, disenfranchised, exploited and victimized. They bear no responsibility for their problems. None of their agonies are attributable to faults or failings of their own: not to poor choices, bad habits, faulty judgment, wishful thinking, lack of ambition, low frustration tolerance, mental illness or defects in character. None of the victims’ plight is caused by failure to plan for the future or learn from experience. Instead, the ”root causes” of all this pain lie in faulty social conditions: poverty, disease, war, ignorance, unemployment, racial prejudice, ethnic and gender discrimination, modern technology, capitalism, globalization and imperialism. In the radical liberal mind, this suffering is inflicted on the innocent by various predators and persecutors: ”Big Business,” ”Big Corporations,” ”greedy capitalists, ”U.S. Imperialists,” ”the oppressors,” ”the rich,” ”the wealthy,” ”the powerful” and ”the selfish.”
            The liberal cure for this endless malaise is a very large authoritarian government that regulates and manages society through a cradle to grave agenda of redistributive caretaking. It is a government everywhere doing everything for everyone. The liberal motto is ”In Government We Trust.” To rescue the people from their troubled lives, the agenda recommends denial of personal responsibility, encourages self-pity and other-pity, fosters government dependency, promotes sexual indulgence, rationalizes violence, excuses financial obligation, justifies theft, ignores rudeness, prescribes complaining and blaming, denigrates marriage and the family, legalizes all abortion, defies religious and social tradition, declares inequality unjust, and rebels against the duties of citizenship. Through multiple entitlements to unearned goods, services and social status, the liberal politician promises to ensure everyone’s material welfare, provide for everyone’s healthcare, protect everyone’s self-esteem, correct everyone’s social and political disadvantage, educate every citizen, and eliminate all class distinctions. With liberal intellectuals sharing the glory, the liberal politician is the hero in this melodrama. He takes credit for providing his constituents with whatever they want or need even though he has not produced by his own effort any of the goods, services or status transferred to them but has instead taken them from others by force.
            It should be apparent by now that these social policies and the passions that drive them contradict all that is rational in human relating, and they are therefore irrational in themselves. But the faulty conceptions that lie behind these passions cannot be viewed as mere cognitive slippage. The degree of modern liberalism’s irrationality far exceeds any misunderstanding that can be attributed to faulty fact gathering or logical error: Indeed, under careful scrutiny, liberalism’s distortions of the normal ability to reason can only be understood as the product of psychopathology. So extravagant are the patterns of thinking, emoting, behaving and relating that characterize the liberal mind that its relentless protests and demands become understandable only as disorders of the psyche. The modern liberal mind, its distorted perceptions and its destructive agenda are the product of disturbed personalities.

      vile

    • Jack Frost

      Workplaces have become vial? A vial is a small container, typically cylindrical and made of glass, used especially for holding liquid medicines. Vile means
      extremely unpleasant. Life is filled with situations where things sound similar but are quite different in reality. Life is filled with bullying. No one can stand up for you but you. Benefits may have been great way back when, but it was not thus for the majority, only the unionized and governmental ranks. Most jobs then were like now, except today the federal government mandates healthcare be provided based on hours worked. So many employers cut hours or reduced workers or both. People own businesses to make a profit, not for social improvement in others. You provide a value to the business greater than the cost or you would not be there.

    • Orange Jean

      I agree with the comment that maybe you need to consider changing fields… but I would also ask this:

      Are you actually being productive the whole 50-60 hours you are working a week?

      If you are I think perhaps you need to learn the word “NO”. I am very glad I have had the courage most of my life to refuse to work those kinds of hours, despite many a boss trying to get me to do that. A lot of employers take advantage of people by pretending that is the only way you can “get ahead” but I have found that is actually not true.

      I also know quite a few people in your age group who “work” long hours but spend 2-3 hours every day just chatting with their friends about all kinds of stuff that has nothing to do with work…instead of actually working. I am not saying that is you, because I don’t know you… but you should maybe ask yourself that.

      Totally agree. Millenials live with parents for economic reasons ONLY. They are free thinking and hard working. Maybe they are snowflakes in the UK but NOT in the US.

  • alan

    Having lived a long time in Asia this is normal. Kids live at home to get their life in order and them some day take off when they are ready. Then some don’t, the house passes to them and the parent stay there taking care of the grand kids. All depends on how you want to look at it I guess.

    In all likely-hood, the “latch-key” kids born into the Gen Xers, have a better chance at getting a warm welcome to stay in the nest, and same goes for the follow up Millennials.
    The mindset of kicking the post educated kids out to make a life for themselves has succumbed to the mindset of continuation of the nurturing and support role, by their parents, and well to do grandparents.

    The times and work ethics have changed, and now many young folks, look to others for their continued support. Hence the overwhelming support for a Socialist like Bernie Sanders.

    This can’t be all blamed on the African American communities as was once the usual consensus by most. The facts of demographics show how it pretty much all figures out.

    “The Pew Research Center describes millennials as “America’s most racially diverse
    generation.”
    ii About 40 percent of millennials are non-white, including about 19 percent
    who identify as Latino or Hispanic, about 13 percent who identify as Black or African
    American and about 6 percent identifying as Asian American.”

    With about 25% of the Millennial Population being a mixture of Hispanics and Asians plus a growing population of Middle Easterners, this leaves a small percentage of that age group…18 to 34, as African American.
    Now it would be interesting to know how many of the African American females are actually living at a parent or grandparents home, with a child or children and receiving all the welfare benefits afforded them.
    In a lot of those cases, the loss of a supportive father is prevalent.

    Hispanics are in the same boat, with the exception of the majority of supporting fathers being present or at least providing a substantial amount of support, while the females still live with a parent.

    America has become a welfare state for Millennial youth, and, immigrants of all ages. the melting pot has just about filled and ready to runneth over.

  • Cinderella Man

    Hey Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and Meranda. It’s gonna be a great new year Michael. This is the kind of articles I like seeing. It’s the absolute truth. This generation of kids are damn soft. They don’t make em like they used to. This is what happens when everyone gets a partcipation trophy. They can’t put their phones down and work. And when you give them constructive criticism they act all wounded and give you the stinkeye. These kids are fed lines of bull by their teachers and guidance counselors they they are all special and they will all have a great job if they go into debt and get a degree. I remember one of your articles that you stated there are over a half million waiters and waitresses that have college degrees. Stunning. Anyways keep hope alive Michael. I sincerely believe America’s best days are ahead of her. It’s gonna be tough but nothing great ever comes easy!!

      Amen to that. If each “living at home” situation were looked at individually; the results would most like reveal that the millennial has a new, or almost new car payment, and a $100.00 per month cell phone/device payment.

      Cell phones are not a necessity and the ability to text and do selfies is just a bothersome luxury, of which millennials presume that they have to have at all times..regardless if they can afford it.

      90% (guesstimate) also have a facebook page so they can display all their private information for the world to see. Who really gives a crap who is doing what with whomever, and when did privacy become a thing of the past?

  • DJohn1

    Not sure where, but the Bible does say that children should live with their parents until they get married.
    I always honored my parents. I obeyed my parents even when I got through my Air Force 4 years. I sought and took their advice on many things.
    I did what the Bible says to do. When I married my wife and I got an apartment. When I got out an opportunity came to me to follow my Father’s trade. At the late age of 26, I became an apprentice in that trade.
    It was rough. But I took whatever came and learned this trade. There is many a time I thought I was going to fail.
    Within the year my wife was pregnant with our first son.
    God helps those that worship and obey his commandments. And so one day early in our marriage I was led to a neighboring town. In that town they were selling brand new houses. I found out that my VA benefits helped me get a house loan. I put $50 down and they covered the closing. So in 1969, we had our first brick home with a 1 car garage for $13,900. My house payment was less than $200 a month.
    My recommendation to all you young people out there is to follow the good book in everything you do.
    Our living God will delight in you and bless you in many ways.
    Jesus is God’s son. Jesus has much wisdom to impart. Follow Jesus and worship God. Do this no matter how hard things become and you will find that they bless you just as they did me.
    My trade gave me a great wage earning ability. At the end of my apprenticeship I did not owe any money to a college anywhere and so when I became a Journeyman in my trade I was guaranteed work.
    In the following years the trade changed many times. I had to learn computers. I was a teletype operator in the trade. I learned and learned again many different aspects of the trade.
    No matter what happened, I had my God and his Son Jesus to lean on.
    I am far from a perfect human being. I make mistakes. I have made any number of mistakes in my life.
    But as long as I worship my God and his son I have always eventually come out on top. That is my advice to our young people. Start there and everything else will be given to you in time.

      I don’t believe there is any word in the bible about the age of marriage or the age of moving away, but common sense says that living with parents after marriage, where most houses were only two rooms, with the basement for livestock, would not be a good environment to be consummating the marriage.

      The bible does speak of the age of 20 as being the age of adulthood for boys, whereby they could serve in the armies of the Kings, and be accepted as fully responsible for their own upbringing.

      I have to imagine that some got married at the ages of 12 and 13, but it is doubtful they could just run out and purchase a condo w/ a terrace garden and animals. LOL.

    God willing things will improve shortly after our new President takes office. Donald MUST bring back our manufacturing jobs. If this happens then young people will have a golden opportunity to make a good living without a College degree, imagine that. But the snowflakes have to be motivated and hungry to go out there and make it happen. And no more enabling by parents. When i was growing up i lacked motivation to make a life for myself and my son then my parents introduced me to a term called TOUGH LOVE. Let’s just say my attitude changed as well as my motivation. I thank God everyday for TOUGH LOVE and my parents willingness to kick me in the butt because that’s exactly what i needed. Never fear implementing drastic measures with your sons and daughters because they will be eternally grateful that you did, i know i am!!!

    The article implies that living with parents is a negative thing and a sign of weakness.

    For centuries, this is the way it was, kids lived with parents till they got married, not only is that Biblical, but, many other cultures practice that, and they do not have half the crime, abortion, out of wedlock pregnancy , etc, etc that we do in the good ole US OF A

    In south america, where my wife is from, the practice of living with parents till you get married is still practiced.

    Prior to the post modern time, this was standard practice in America, and I would argue, we were colle tively closer to “natures God, the God of our heritage”when that was practiced.

    How dies our culture compare today to then???

    How’s that kick the kids out at 18 so they can get a taste of the real world…..working out????

    It is Biblical principles that point towards a child remaining with parents till marriage, under the guidance, protection of parents to establish solid moral values.

    Of course, the family unit has been fragmented severely.

    The whole snowflake, issue is an entire different issue, but, please show me Biblically and historically when young, single adults leaving parents to be ” free” and do their own thing has been a good thing?

      Depends on the parents. My mother was a pill popping addict who was abusive towards me, so I moved out. Never regretted it!

      • JC Teecher

        I understand completely, as my mother was an abusive, compulsive shopper, and a whore to boot. Us kids suffered greatly at her selfishness, and me being the oldest was beaten often, and used as her whipping boy to take out her frustrations on when she did not get her way.

        I was one happy kid in the second grade when she finally left for a few years, and even though I had to basically raise my little brother and, eventually a new sister she brought home and left with us, it was better than being beaten all the time because of her wicked nature.

        Later in life, I did forgive her, even though she never admitted wrong, nor asked for forgiveness, I had to do it. she had already stolen much of my early youth, so forgiveness was the only way to not allow her to take my adolescent years as well.

        And….if the truth be known, they were indoctrinated and mind washed by parents and the educational system of liberals, so they either voted for Odrama and his liberal policies, or not at all.

      Bull Caca!

      Any girl/woman that only marries a guy for the size of his wallet, or another thing, is “not” worth having in the first place.
      Any man that cannot maintain decent living quarters and a used, but reliable vehicle, food and other necessary requirements for self sufficiency on “$11-15 per hour”; is living above his means and is probably a slack budget manager.

      Too many folks these days have fallen into the commercialism trap of believing they have to drive new cars and own $200k brick ranchers.
      There is nothing wrong with owing either, but coming out of college with the mindset they are “entitled” to those things right away, is living in la la land. Especially if their parents aren’t handing out the silver spoons in a monthly stipend for the next 30 years.

      I was kicked out of my bedroom and home because of being the oldest in a low income, ever growing family, at the age of 16, after buying (on credit) my first vehicle (a 1964 VW), for $550.00.
      I was already working as a bag boy at a grocery store, and then upgraded to a four hour nightly, mon thru fri. (and sometimes Sat.) job in order to pay rent and groceries. All the while, still going to high school everyday and making better than average grades.
      After a year of that, I moved into full time second shift work, with a $1.00 an hour raise. I finished High School, upgraded my living situation, and then entered Community College. For two years I took a full course load with 4 year college preparatory classes, and worked a full 9 hour shift every night.
      After a promotion and another $1.00 per hour raise, I was making nearly $7.00 per hour in 1977, and bought a nearly new mobile home, with a rental lot.

      If I had to do it all over again, I could do it, as I did, without help from anyone but my Heavenly Father.
      There are no excuses for not having the necessities of life if a person is able, and willing to work, at any job available.

      America is raising three generations of whiners and crybabies, with a heavy dose of entitled lazy a$$e$ to boot.

      • TimeHasCome

        OK JC Teecher in 1977 if you were making $7 per hour like you state , that is $22.74 in todays dollars ( based on annual inflation of 3.49%) . You are out of date of the realities of today

        • JC Teecher

          Not even close, but comparisons to today’s costs of living can only be compared, in all reality, to the living standards in the city or situation to which one has holed up in.

          Relocation can change comparisons by leaps and bounds.

        Things are a lot harder nowadays in order to be self-sufficient with rising costs and stagnant wages. You can’t look at your past and mirror it with today’s circumstances. There was a good number of people back then who didn’t even finish high school who found great jobs or even started their own businesses. That’s incredibly unlikely these days.

      • Orange Jean

        Depends on where you live. There are plenty of places in the US where those kinds of wages won’t even get you a modest 1 bedroom apartment, food and a bus pass.

        “I was kicked out of my bedroom and home because of being the oldest in a
        lower middle class income, ever growing family, at the age of 16.”

        Maybe your parents should have practiced birth control instead of adding to the misery of their impoverished life by blindly following the multiply order of their church.

        Having more children then you can afford to take care of does not make for a happy family life for both parents and children.

    • Orange Jean

      That doesn’t sound like the kind of earnings I would expect with an engineering degree, but the demand of specific jobs comes and goes. Are they doing that work, or something unrelated? Is it an internship?

  • AverGo

    It seems to me that No one can see past the indoctrination. Families, staying together is better to help each other, instead of ” Can’t wait for the kids to move out, so I can have a life again” or ” Put my parents in a home and be free of responsibility” Society today is a selfish Anti-Christ system of Slavery in endless hours of work, that all people can think about is themselves because of the thought indoctrination of ” I deserve it”
    Money is fake( Not backed by Gold or Silver), Banks complain about going under, yet the money is always in the bank, you borrow to buy and the money is back in the bank. People are fooled. Prices go up, wage do not, need to take on a second job to pay the morgage. When will people wake up and see the System was designed to keep you a slave and to struggle.
    You’re kept so wrapped up in your circumstances, you can’t think for yourselves. You are Boxed in, by lies and illusions. Jesus can set you Free, but you need to let go of the things of this world. Worship Him in Truth and hold nothing back. Anything you can’t let go of, becomes your god.

    a college education today is one of the biggest scams perpetrated on the American public, most private universities are financially beyond the means of the average American unless you are willing to go into debt [both] parents and student for most of your working lifetime while offering very little in return in career advancement and job security, unfortunately automation and robotics are spelling doom for a tradesman so unless you are part of the 1% , you will have to think outside of the box to creatively manage and chart your career path.

    Why not stay home and save on the high rents? Our tech society has enabled home businesses to prosper. The new generation are prone to be inventors due to computer technology available. They are designing new products and printing on 3D printers. Just because they live at home doesn’t mean they don’t have a home business.

    I’ve been paying rent now for 48 years.I’m going for the world record-unless I finally decide to move to Nevada to make my fortune.

    • Orange Jean

      Well, I think I maybe beat you already for the “world record” – depending on specific dates. I started paying rent in November 1968.

      But I no longer see it as some kind of “failure” – a few years ago I gave up the idea of ever owning a home (my rent being about half the cost of a mortgage around here… just not practical). Since then I was finally able to get out of debt and start saving seriously.

      OK, so I cannot paint the walls black or something weird like that without the landlord’s OK, but so what? I think home “ownership” (actually for most people, borrowing huge amounts of money from the bank… who is the real owner)… is grossly over valued. For example, if I had to move I can do so at any time with 30 days notice, that’s all.

  • Onyx

    Yeah! Lazy generation snowflakes! Why can’t they just go out with nothing but a high school diploma and get a manufacturing job that’ll afford them a house? That’s what their parents did! Sheesh! Why don’t they just find a company that doesn’t care about Obamacare and will give them a FT job with benefits? What’s wrong with these precious snowflakes? Clearly what they need to do is start their own business. EASY. Especially after following their parents advice to go to college and having $200,000 in debt before they even try to get a business loan. Piece of cake. What a bunch of whiny snowflakes. Their parents took everything that worked for them and elected idiots who changed all of it for the next generations. Things are so much better now clearly.

    Murray Rothbard talks about the role of economists in a free society in contrast to the role of economists in an interventionist society. Could the reason why so many economists support interventionism be related to the fact that their market value is so much higher in an interventionist society?

    Too many bought into the “got to have a college degree” mantra over the years. Truth is, you don’t. There are many great paying jobs out there that go unfilled where you need a good 2 year or less training program to get into. A doctor I visited a few years back said that many of the interns and recent grads from med school, wanted to sit in the back, play video games, and collect a check. They were not interested in seeing patients. Hard work, or work of any type is something to be avoided at any cost. Another person who worked in road and bridge construction said that he had problems finding people who would work in the weather. Too hot in the summer. Too cold in the winter. The only people he could find who were reliable and would work no matter what, were Mexicans. It’s not always that there are no jobs. It’s just the jobs that need help are hard work in less than great conditions.

    My son (24) is out on his own and fully functioning. He works a good job at a good salary; right out of the University. He has a Masters Degree with no debt; he went to an affordable State University and lived at home. School and degree selection are the key. Parents are allowing their children to get useless degrees and go deeply into debt to do so. No is a word that I use often. We have a parenting problem, not a “Millennial” problem. Look in the mirror and you will see the snow making machine.

    I think there is a VERY big difference in the way young people who live with parents live now compared to earlier generations. Yes, my parents lived with their parents until they got married (1949 or so). But both of them worked (my mother was forced to drop out of high school when she turned 16 by her mother… so she could go to work in a factory). Both of them paid “room and board” to their parents… and both of them did plenty of chores around the house. My father’s dad owned a dairy and my dad would get up 3AM to deliver and/or collect milk and help milk cows.

    I am from the generation (born 1950) where it was more common to leave home at 18, most of my friends and siblings did that or something similar. But I also got a part time, minimum wage job at 16 (as did my brothers) and paid 1/2 my earnings to my parents for “room and board”. When I left home (day after I turned 18), I got a job (also minimum wage at first) and either lived in a rented room or later with roommates so I could afford to. Still not easy. In my case I felt I had to leave home because my mother was abusive. I do not regret that I did that.

    And one of my brothers joined the Army for 3 years so he could avoid getting drafted and sent to Vietnam (they promised him a duty station of his choice if he signed up instead… it was at then end of the war.

    Where I work there are a LOT of Millenials (about 90%)… and the ones who live with parents do not contribute at all to their families household expenses… yet all the while spend tons of money on new clothes, phones, trips, etc. and complain incessantly about being “broke”. AFTER buying a brand new car over $25,000 and still paying student loans. So I do not feel sorry for them OR their families.

    And a good many “Special Snowflakes” among them… for example, I had someone a few months ago complain to my boss that I was “yelling” at them… yet they even admitted… I did NOT even raise my voice. I had asked them to “tone it down or find another place to talk” when they had a loud social-only chit chat session about 5 of them a few feet from my cubicle where I was trying to actually work!

      Does it bother you that your mother was so abusive that you had to leave home at 18 to get away from her? More than likely your grandmother did the same to your mother.

      Being forced to quit school to get a job is wrong. Education improves generations. People like to talk about the work ethic of the good ole days yet those days were not as grand for most as people like to believe. Life as a work horse, then marriage and having multiple kids because birth control was frowned upon by the church was common. Not to mention for many women they were forced to stay married to their abusive husbands – by both church and law. It was not until the sixties or so that women did not have to jump through as many legal hoops to divorce an abuser.

        I see where you are coming from Sue, and there is some truth in your words, however; there is a lot of underlying hate and blame.

        I feel sorry for you, even though as a pro abortion girl/woman and most likely feministic as seen in your words, you don’t want pity.

        I do feel enough compassion for you that I have said a prayer for you, and hope you can get past your blaming a God, of which you proclaim to not believe in, and see that He has love and compassion for you, just as He did when He created your soul and first spirit body…in the beginning.

        Good luck (cause that is all you got is luck, without Jesus Christ) and Merry Christmas.

      • Orange Jean

        Of course it bothers me that she was abusive and you are right that it was multiple generations (in my family, both sides… generally linked with substance abuse, mostly alcoholism). The main reason I sometimes will mention it is I know for kids who had abusive parents… some of us take years before realizing that is what was wrong, and it messes up your whole life if you don’t realize it is there.

        That being said, it was normal in those times where I come from for people to leave home at 18. A lot of women married right out of high school too. And anyone who lived at home after they were maybe 20 was considered some kind of weirdo who didn’t want to grow up.

        I also think the work ethnic was good, but not the part where my mother was forced to drop out of high school to do it. It was partially due to poverty (my grandmother was raising 6 kids alone with an ex she kicked out of the house because of excessive drinking). It was also at the time among some people considered education a “waste” for women, because they were “going to get married and stay home” – which is not what my mom did for a long time … she was 28 when she finally married and had her first kid (who was me)… and that was considered “old” in her day.

        Birth control changed a lot of things, that’s for sure. But on my mothers side of the family there were also cultural issues – her family was Portuguese, from the Azores… and if my family is any indication that culture was very anti-female. The main reason my mother hated me supposedly was because I was female. My brothers got the usual Portuguese treatment, treated like little mini-Gods walking the face of the earth. I attribute that in part to the Moorish conquest of Spain and Portugal.

        Women were supposed to wait on the men in the family hand-and-foot. And my father was very anti-condom… to the point where after she refused to have any more kids the marriage essentially caved in (although never good in the first place). In my opinion … my mother should have never had kids and neither of them should have ever married.

    How many of these millennials are on psych meds forced on them by school shrinks? Also how many of them are autistic?

    “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of
    their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and
    corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of
    all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent
    their Fathers conquered.”

    Multigenerational families are something to be celebrated, provided that the relationship works out to the advantage of all parties. It provides financial security and strengthens family bonds. We’ve been better for the experience.

    Trump has does more than Obama and is not even in yet, rest assured.

  • ace

    No jobs except what we need to do around the house to protect our families such as organic garden. Trump might help us find work that is not dependent on ripping people off.
