So, you're advocating the government prop them up?
Here's what I say that 20 something ought to do.
Make better choices. Don't have kids he can't afford. (You know, we hear people scream this all the time about the "moocher class".)
Learn a better living in an industry that isn't dying.
Educate and better himself.
Sell cars. sell insurance. Sell ice cream. Be proactive and find a way.
There's a ton of things he CAN do excpt hope that politicians will continue to bail his dumb ass out to buy his vote.
(Counting on government.. is this a conservative plank? i don't think so..)
I'd be more worried about the 40 or50-something in the same boat.
At 35 i had to change the course of my life due to circumstances i didn't have control over.
it's hard, but It isn't impossible.
I could have cried and asked for the government to prop me up, but i didn't. I took what little money I had and went to school.
And now, life is good, and i'm working in an industry that is shaping the future, not crying out from the past.
