An amuse-bouche of commentary

Generation X Fares Poorly During Recession, Says Study…

I thought this was interesting, especially given all the discussion on the boards about the ways that gen-xers are being lumped in with boomers as ruining the economy. I'm tired of it. We never raised into leadership roles. We've been the first generation to make less than our parents. We're pretty much fucked and having no retirements but with high debt.

And this is my third recession in my adult life. I was screwed in the first when I couldn't find a job. I was hurt in the second when our programs were defunded. And now I get screwed in the third.


HURRAH. Stop blaming us, Jesus Chris. Gen X didn't get jack shit.
