From Cairo to London to Brooklyn, too many young people are jobless and disaffected...In short, the fissure between young and old is deepening. "The older generations have eaten the future of the younger ones," former Italian Prime Minister Giuliano Amato told Corriere della Sera. In Britain, Employment Minister Chris Grayling has called chronic unemployment a "ticking time bomb."

Yeah, that's my experience. Now, I'm luckier than most because I worked in customer service/as a secretary for most of my work experience and have some good experience to get a halfway decent paying job. Not great, but decent. A lot of kids my age have a Bachelor's, a lot of them in decent fields, and still can't find jobs. You know something is wrong when the IT and Business majors can't even get jobs as fast food managers. Realistically, with unemployment so high in many areas, it's just plain stupid to put the blame entirely on the young.
