"You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious."
When comments are better than the article, Atlantic edition (“The Cheapest Generation: Why Millennials aren’t buying cars or houses, and what that means for the economy”)
Also how am I supposed to afford a car or a house when I have student debt and bills to pay but places want me to intern for free.
I don’t understand this internship generation. Everything requires experience that you can only acquire if you work for free.
I think we’re frustrated no one told us that unpaid internships are now part of the way you get “real job” until much later in education, so any kind of financial support a student is getting runs out at graduation, but their needs are similar while interning.
