By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch. "And without schooling, you can´t get a job that

Kyle shouldn´t fret he can get a job at the Washington Post and write from his Mom´s basement like the rest of their reporters.

Life is made up of little choices and some of those determine the future. The biggest problem with most millennials is that they don´t choose the challenging thing.
I watched so many kids go off to college and come home with a degree that was useless. They chose the easy major that would not cause them stress or interfere with their fun in college.

So when my girls went off to college I told them that they had four years in the best college they could get into. They would graduate with no debt, but then they were financially on their own. So if you choose to major in psychology or communications, be ready to live your life on a Bed Bath and Beyond salary. They both chose engineering.

Unlike #2, a lot parents helped make these kids into the helpless buttercups they are. I read yesterday about the distraught Starbucks barista who had a meltdown because making unicorn frappaccinos was giving him sticky fingers. Imagine if he were working in a job where he would really come home dirty.

Mike Rowe is the sage of our time. There are literally hundreds of thousands of jobs - well-paid jobs - that go unfilled every day. That is because they often require skilled training that today´s kids do not have the patience for. It takes the willingness to take direction, fail, learn from your failure, and move on, skills that today´s kids lack. It requires leaving safe spaces where comfort is the opiate of the perpetual child masses.

Wanna learn how to make good money? Well, point your diaper dandy to this website. It´s a start.

#2´s comments are right on. There are many kids who should not go to college. They are academically not prepared, choose ridiculous majors, incur lots of debt before they flunk out and cannot find a job much beyond minimum wages

Many who do go and are academically successful and graduate have majored in one of these ridiculous majors. They then compound their problems by going for a Master´s Degree in this worthless major, incur more debt and still cannot find a job that will enable them to be financially independent ( hence Mom´s basement is the alternative). As # 2 said...it is all about choices and the millennial bunch makes some very terrible choices. But of course they know best!!!!!!!

When I was in college, many years ago, ROTC was mandatory for male Freshmen and Sophmores. It really helped a lot of guys grow up. I wish it could be brought back for both male and female students. At least we would see some discipline on our campuses.

Everyone in my family got scholarships and/or worked -and lived at homer. While my brothers managed to work and go to day school, I went at night. Dad took card of room and board plus medical. We did the rest. Very few people go to the top schools-unless like my Dad you live in the same town-townies can find a way! The rest of us go to small colleges then get our Masters at a better University. It is not that hard.

I thought the article made some good points. Jobs in factories used to provide a basic income for many ´low skilled´ employees, which was good for those not cut-out for college. Some of those people would advance to more complex jobs. Now that route has been pretty much cut off. They are at a dead end at age 25.

The only thing I learned that was worth while from a lout of a father was: "There are three ways to make excellent honest money: Get a job doing something nasty that no one else wants to do, or something dangerous that few have the courage to do or something smart that few can do. You will always be in demand and make great money. Everyone can do jobs that are clean, safe and require no smarts. Thus those jobs don´t pay well but they are plentiful."

I have always been puzzled by people holding a degree who work as servers at Starbucks or Pizza joints.

How did Skippy´s minister put it...."The chickens have come home to roost." Combine the teachers´ union, lazy parenting, participation trophies, political correctness, and a child into a large cauldron and mix for eighteen or twenty years and out pops a confused, mind-numbed, self-important person...but still a child.

No construction work? Ha. Everywhere I look there´s construction going on. These snowflakes run from hard work. They´re used to everything handed to them on silver platters with no consequence for failure, and then when it´s time to go out and grow up they are little lost whiners who think they know everything. I´m so afraid for the future of our country.

The failure of the US educational system plays a role. College and high school graduates lack training necessary for available jobs.

I have a friend who is an electrician at a local power plant and is in his mid-thirties. He recently acquired a 20-something trainee. Well, hard-hat crews being what they are gave this kid some good natured razzing which the kid did not take well at all. He called his MOM who told him to tell this crew they should not be mean to him. seriously??

Well, he went back to the crew and told them exactly that. Needless to say he unleashed a boatload of misery upon himself. My friend found the kid´s hard hat and painted it pink (didn´t have snowflake decals though). The kid quit after two days.

I guess the power plant did not have a ´safe place´ or puppies to pet. That will probably be the next ´big thing´ for work places nationwide.

Spot on #13. Universities teach our next generation what (not ´how´) to think and feeeeel, and how to be a mindless foot-soldier in the army needed to take down the nation from within. To that end - they´re doing a good job.

The Me generation did a crappy job of passing down the principles and advantages they were given.
The rise of divorce, working moms, and latch key kids gave rise to a generation who pretty much raised themselves.
Couple that with an abysmal education system, which narcissistic parents pretty much ignored, and a damaged economy, and lots of kids have it rough.

#12 is spot on.

Traditionally, men occupied most positions in industries such as manual labor and construction work. With those mostly gone, male wages have been hit harder than "women who started off behind" but excelled in school and college, Carnevale said.

NBC is clueless as to who has taken these jobs. I´m positive every single person here knows who has taken those jobs.

I teach first-semester calculus-based physics. The biggest thing I see now is many students want good grades but do not want to challenge themselves. I became a physicist because it was difficult. I knew that if I could figure it out and make a career of it, that I would have a job. For the most part, this has been true. Kids give up too easy! A C on your report card is not the kiss of death if you learned valuable lessons along the way.

#9 has it exactly right. Nasty, dangerous or high intelligence jobs are always in demand and pay well. I worked 30+ years in nuclear power plants. Always well paid and plenty of overtime available. A lot of the work was hot, dirty, radioactive and required a high degree of knowledge.

After a lifetime of being told you are exceptional by your parents, teachers and professors, all the while never having to be barely competent, it´s a hard lesson looking for that first job and finding out you´re not all that. That, and wanting to start out making big bucks and enjoying the same lifestyle you had at home practically guarantees disappointment. To them I say, ever heard of overtime or working weekends? I know... I know... evenings and weekends are for partying.

I entered my 20s as a sailor. That teenage choice paid for my college attendance. Picking a "wanted" grad skill paid for my grad schooling. It seems to be advantageous to select work and morally helpful opportunities such as those requiring night work or weekend work.
It´s about stepping out and waking into to the future by following parental and historical advice.

There is a lot of eye rolling after reading this dreck. Suck it up buttercup. You and your parents need to grow up.

Stopping the draft and taking prayer out of schools ruined this country. Look at old HS yearbooks. They looked and acted like adults. Most of them didn´t have someone to bail them out or let them live at home. They didn´t have new cars either.

There are plenty of managers and assistant managers without college earning $45k to over $70k in my local grocery store. They are expected to work however.

College ? They sound like they need daycare.

Fancy Names for Left-Wing Anti-Semitism

It was a Chicago weekend filled with gay pride events, with friends and families cheering on the marchers. But a dark cloud loomed over one event. When some lesbians showed up at the “Dyke March” with banners that included a Star of David, they were booted out. The Jewish symbol “made us feel unsafe,” the organizers said. As the blues-rock singer Delbert McClinton once wrote, “If you can’t lie no better than that, you might as well tell the truth.” Noxious in its own right, this incident highlights several problems that are now pervasive on the left and increasingly pollute the public sphere.

Some discerning Democrats are at last telling the party chiefs that the party has no message to take to the hustings next year. That may be a misreading of the stars, Nancy Pelosi’s horoscope and Chuck Schumer’s tea leaves. The problem for the Democrats, clear to everyone with battered ears and weary eyes, is that the Democrats have too many messages, and none of them good. That’s why they’ve been skunked in a series of special elections held to fill House seats vacated by members moving on to bigger things in the Trump administration. Some of the Democratic messages, which have been

The AMA Betrays Patients and Doctors… Again

Today, the American Medical Association sent a letter to the leaders of the U.S. Senate announcing its opposition to the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 (BCRA). The AMA’s ostensible reason for doing so was stated thus: “Medicine has long operated under the precept of Primum non nocere, or ‘first, do no harm.’ The draft legislation violates that standard on many levels.” The AMA’s opposition to the GOP “repeal and replace” bill was all over the “news” media within an hour after its release, and most outlets implied that it represents the views of the medical profession in general.

Why the stock market keeps

All news is good news, apparently — at least if you judge by the stock market. US economic growth is sluggish, consumer confidence is down and President Trump’s tax reform is stalled. And yet, the market isn’t spooked — it has climbed to historic highs. The question is why. After all, the warning signs aren’t imaginary. The slow uphill trudge of Trump’s health-care reform is holding up his tax cuts because his aides say he needs health-care budget savings to finance them.Many investors I speak to are particularly obsessed with slashing the corporate-tax rate from its current level of 35 percent — one

It often has been observed that philosophy really got going when people started thinking seriously about the distinction between appearance, on the one hand, and reality, on the other. Plato is full of meditations on this theme, from the stick that appears bent when half submerged in a bowl of water to the texture and real significance of our experience of the everyday world. The moral is: things are not always as they seem. Alas, it is one thing to enunciate that moral in the abstract, quite another to take account of its operation on the ground. Grigory Potemkin famously exploited our habit

How much do Democrats really want to defeat President Trump? There’s no doubt that Democrats want to watch TV programs that excoriate the president. They want to give money to candidates opposing him. They want to fantasize about frog-marching him straight from his impeachment proceedings to the nearest federal penitentiary. But do they want to do the one thing that would make it easier to win tough races in marginal areas, namely moderate on the cultural issue? Not so much. In retrospect, Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District was overdetermined. He didn’t live in the district. He had no record of

The hotly-anticipated Senate Republican health care bill came out on Thursday morning. The airwaves quickly filled up with predictable talking points from both sides. But once the dust settles, it will emerge that the Senate bill will have far-reaching effects on American health care: for the better.In March, when House Republicans published their bill to replace Obamacare—the American Health Care Act—I described it in Forbes this way: “GOP’s Obamacare Replacement Will Make Coverage Unaffordable For Millions—Otherwise, It’s Great.” I meant it. There were great things about the House bill, in particular its far-reaching reforms of the Medicaid program.

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

Obama, wife Michelle and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were invited to vacation in Indonesia by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who also asked the family to visit the presidential Bogor Palace in West Java during their trip, according to ABC News.
