Getting a (good) job
Good jobs with decent wages (never mind health benefits, pensions, and paid vacation) are becoming harder to find. Young workers are more likely to have part-time, contract, gig, and other forms of precarious work – not the full-time, secure positions more often available to previous generations. And even for those who have jobs, their hard work doesn’t pay off they way it used to, with average wages declining. When falling wages meet high and rising prices on things like homes and child care, the result is young people squeezed for time and money.
