Could the Millennials make up this lost ground? Perhaps, if wage growth suddenly and dramatically accelerates, urban cores start to build millions of new homes, and Congress announces a student-loan debt jubilee.

Narrator: They won't.


I think this article is a little bit over zealous in stating that the millenial generation is fucked in regards to the American dream. While yes, we do have less income, this is nothing new. We've been dealing with this shit for a decade. I'm sure there will be millinials that lose their jobs, but a good portion of the working force is baby boomers too who may also lose their jobs. We'll get the short end of the stick and recover. We always do.
