gentlebaby lives with 10 other adult babies. They strike me as so pathetic

This post is dripping with venom.
You clearly have issues with anyone who doesn't fit the nice neat mold that you were taught was normal.
American dream of having a family, house and cars? Hah yeah you're not a big responsible adult unless you do all that crap.
You can almost hear the desperation with which you want these people to join you in the vapid misery that you describe as adulthood.

There are no safe jobs, unless you are a legislator, or are in the insurance industry.

You ignorance is astounding.
They are forced to live in these conditions are they saddled with debt and have no economic opportunities because their future was shipped overseas.

I don't know what to say about the manufacturing jobs, it doesn't look like they are coming back. That doesn't mean a man or woman can't find a good paying job without putting themselves in debt. There are still industries around that aren't going away anytime soon.
Take for instance good paying service jobs. Almost every household has car. Shops are always looking for mechanics. You can take a 1 year vocational program at your local community college. Get an entry level job working in a shop. After 2 years experience, study and take your ASE exams. Pass them all and become a Master Tech. Extremely high demand, and you will make $70+ an hour working for a dealership.
Just about every home, apartment, and business has an HVAC system. You can go through a vocational program for that as well. You may not make as much as an auto tech, but you can still own a house if you live modestly, and save for a down payment.
