Currently I am a bit older then most students on here, and I am looking at buying a house, starting a family with my wife etc.. - and it quickly becomes very apparent how absolutely
ed this country is for young people, and how little those in charge care.
We live in a system designed for the benefit of older generations.. yet young people just dont really care. Sure some debate politics, but in terms of actual change.. many dont vote, and even more that do vote, don't vote primarily on issues around young people, but rather country wide issues.
A bad trend has started though, and soon I hope the younger generation start to wake up.
First it was an end to stable jobs-for life..
Then reports that young people were not getting married until far later
Then reports that now the average first time buyer is 30, and young people are frozen out of the market..
Now finally reports that more and more young people don't feel able to have children due to the reasons listed above.
1 by 1 the cornerstones of life for our generation are being eroded, yet so few are kicking and screaming about it.
and those that are.. are happy chasing a red herring by blaming Europe for problems that are far far closer to home.
