About the Author: The Hill


  1. Why do all of the commenters focus on what Congress is doing instead of the local politicians who did something actually unconstitutional, highly illegal, and caused the depression?

  2. I moved back home at 25. Might as well, parents have big bought off place. Enough area to give me whole basement with shower and own kitchen. So not too terrible, still want own plaace again

  3. Hope for the best, plan for the worst and have a backup plan. But you have to have a plan and plans change. Be more self reliant, relying on others is often disappointing and sometimes dangerous. Nothing is free, one has to work for it, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. It's not just the last straw that broke the camel's back it had help from all the straws placed there before. In short, it's not just the economy.

  4. Meanwhile my daughter just bought a brand new built home at 34 years of age, still has $10k in student loans,& working a job that has nothing to do with her degree, making great money & working Really hard,& Not complaining one bit!!!

  5. You can only keep the working class down for so long before they realize they have nothing to lose and you have everything to lose. One way or another, this is not sustainable. Change is coming. The avenue for that change is still yet to be determined.

  6. It's not just about the economy. About half of my younger millennial and gen z friends that are still employed are taking advantage of the work from home system to go live with mom and dad. Some are helping take care of their younger siblings and helping them with remote learning, others are just doing it because they can and they'd rather live with mom and dad and get free food than deal with the stress of the lockdown on their own. Some of them are enrolled in college still and the dorms aren't open so they have to live with mom and dad, others cancelled their lease to save money and are virtually attending college from a different state while living with mom and dad. In general, millennials were known for not wanting to leave home so it's not really a surprise to me that when given the opportunity to move back in and do their work or school from mom and dad's house, they jump on the opportunity. Not trying to downplay those that are actually hurting financially, but it's not a one to one correlation, there's a lot of other cases in play.

  7. you both come closer than most in exposing the problem but you pull up just shy of it, call it out by name, CAPITALISM is failing as predicted, the only way it survives is to return to heavy regulation and high tax rates on the upper brackets essentially forcing reinvestment as we did from 1930-1980. and those changes need to be permanent , as in constitutional amendments.

  8. I literally graduated in June and can't find a job no matter how hard I look and how many places I apply for😞 there's almost no hope for me I feel so stuck and can't find a job to start my life

  9. If 100% of people in a society aren’t taken care of that society has failed

    I’m not talking handouts
    I’m talking jobs for all
    Medicare for all
    Dignified retirement for all

    The problem is that societies not just the US perceive financial success as their metric not societal well being!

    A country where the richest get 1.5 trillion in tax cuts while the poorest don’t eat every day and have to pick food or medicine but not both is an abject failure!

  10. Great points krystal. DNC is only for the rich donors and not the people they are supposedly supposed to represent.
    Time to primary them all and get rid of the corporate shills.

  11. I’m a millennial, and what better of a generation to compete against than the millennials. They/we are pitiful. How about that 11 year bull run? Millennials simply weren’t hungry enough to get ahead.

  12. A college "education" is the biggest scam of the past 50 years. After high school, get a job, any job, save most of what you earn, and in two or three years, start your own business. In 10 more years, you will be doing great while your old pals who went to college and majored in social studies or gay rights while running up a six-figure debt, will be living in their parents' basement and playing video games all day and night. Work for a living? Why, they ask, when mommy and daddy will take care of them forever.

  13. I would LOVE to have stayed afloat and on my own, but as a first year out of school 21 year old waiter the early months of the pandemic sent me right back home with my dad. :/
