As a youth of this country, I can tell you first hand, the Millennials have been living through a depression. We are largely broke. Unemployment for those under 30 is estimated as 12 percent. Factor in underemployment it grows. Factor in the real life, college students have been hiding out from the job market, they have stayed in higher education. If you counted college students into the unemployment rate, those figures would spike. We would be looking at the same rate of youth unemployment of Spain and Greece.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released the song “Thrift Shop” at the end of 2012. The video on Youtube has 274 million views. The song itself perfectly displays youth poverty. Here are some of the lyrics:
“I am stunting and flossing and saving my money
and I am halla happy That’s a bargain Bitch,
