Younger Americans face a daunting jobs market. Covid-19 has crushed the employment market especially with entry level positions and internships which are typically used as platforms into full-time career opportunities. The Class of 2020 has graduated into the worst economy in modern history. While some sectors in the economy are hiring, these jobs are a small portion of the overall economy that needs to provide opportunities to millions of recent graduates and those without college degrees. So it comes as no surprise that a record number of young Americans are now living at home. In fact, in 120 years of record keeping, we are now at the highest percentage on record – 52% of those 18- to 29-years-old are now living with their parents. That is a stunning number and has implications for the next decade of our economic growth.

Yep. Most normal young men naturally want to get away from their mother at 16-18 years of age. It's normal, I think. I loved my mom until the day she died. She was a good mother and a teacher, and I learned much from her. But after I was about 16 I sure needed her less and less.
