Yep, that and the real estate scam. It's a damn shame that you can buy cheaper than rent. I can remember when it was the other way around. One avenue for you is to look at owner financing. There are a lot of people out there looking to dump property and are willing to be the bank. I did that on a house I owned once.

But in relation to kids working here in Australia it is exploited to a degree by corporations like McDonalds. They employ 16 year olds on a casual basis then they dont call after they turn 18.
Works out ok though because most over 18 wouldnt want to work at McDonalds.

Honest to gawd, I really feel like increased technology is to blame.
If a person can have a cheap, no contract smart phone that keeps them texting (or sexting) every minute of every day, why would they be inspired to seek anything more than a Burger King job and living with their mama?
