tj85016 saidwho ever said this was just limited to millennials?
Less money saved, school tuition wasn't even close to what it costs now, electronic bills regarding phone, Internet, cable, etc isn't what it was in the slightest, and minimum wage hasn't changed much at all (relatively speaking) to compensate for any of these added expenses.
I moved out at 19 in the nyc are without any help from family. What I can't stand are people 40 and up telling me to go back to school as if I want to be in debt. Maybe if I had the support, but I don't, plus there's still time anyway. The whole college right after HS bs they shove down your throat throughout hs is the issue imo, especially today with the amount of student loan debt this nation faces. Not everyone knows what they want to be in life as a 14-17 year old kid.
