Older generations dont realize the problems they had growing up are not the same problems younger generations have.
“I went to and paid for college working part time” – cool good for you. Except minimum wage hasn’t kept up with inflation, college costs have gone up 5 times faster than inflation, and college has gone from higher education to near mandatory education if you want a white collar job that won’t even pay for said college.
Healthcare – “I paid for healthcare why shouldn’t you”. Well healthcare costs also have gone up significantly faster than inflation while wages have stayed stagnant. Oh and you know those white collar jobs that provide healthcare insurance- we can’t get those because they require college degrees we can’t afford.
And let’s forget about even owning a house due to student loans and insane housing prices. Something they didn’t need to get back then because they could afford college on a summer job salary.
Oh and that social safety net in social security youre relying on for retirement today, most of us expect that it will be vastly underfunded and we won’t get it until 80 because boomers have been raiding our contributions to it for their own use. And even if we do get it, it won’t be enough because pensions – something a large percentage of boomers rely on to supplement their retirement income which dont exist for us.
Boomers parents fought for the those rights for their children so the boomer generation could have social security, Medicare, pensions, high minimum wages, labor union’s etc.
Now when it’s boomers turn to fight for their kids future they call us lazy and entitled when we ask for the same standards that helped them grow – affordable college, healthcare, housing, and good jobs.
And even with all of that they piled up national debt in our names and will leave us an uncontrollable world crisis due to climate change.
And people wonder why we want revolution change now over status quo.
