then move out. Don't you have a few friends? Rent is easier to cover if you have a few people paying it!

Then the flight school he was attending went bankrupt, leaving him with $60,000 in debt but not enough training to start his career.

Well that's farked up.

I thought the 'working 70 hours a week' while living at home was f*cked up, too.

If this guy has no job it's a good guess his friends don't either. Zero income multiplied by any number is still zero. It is already becoming it's own stigma as resume poison. "Why haven't you had a job since graduating ?" is the new "Don't call us we'll call you"

American problems.

Here's the stereotype: Across the country, basements are full of 20- and 30-somethings who graduated from college and now live with mom and mad because they can't find a job.

TF handles?

/c'mon, they gotta be spending something

If only there were some way to find out if this guy actually has a job where he works up to 70 hours/week cleaning sewers...what a pity there isn't such a thing.

What a guy with no job might look like.

Why doesn't he just pull himself up by his bootstraps?!!? 

This is why we have to remove social safety nets. I'd rather him live on the streets than getting a government hand out to keep him afloat in trouble times.

Opposite problem: my mom is threatening to move in with me.

The distinction doesn't seem to hold when you're chatting someone up at a bar, for some reason.

Apartments around here are not letting you sublet anymore. Mostly so they can take care of an apartment shove full of adults but they are charging much more an rent that you end up only saving 100 - 200 a month out of 1.1k in rent you pay alone.

"The weak job market of the past five years has certainly made it tough for young college grads to find a good job, but economists say young people with little education are probably having a harder time. "


Ric Romero says film at 11.

Seriously, get a farking degree and then get a job. Get an advanced degree while you're working and then go find an even better job. It's not impossible unless you're a dumbass.

And if you're a dumbass then consider suicide or a vasectomy.
 
2013-08-22 06:28:02 PM
To be fair, there's quite a few young adults with college degrees that owe 50k+ towards their college education.  I'm not quite sure if that's the better option or not.

I know how we can fix this.

Give a 50% tax cut to everyone earning over $2M annually.  Problem solved.

Is there a reason that guy can't go to an attorney and do a personal bankruptcy?

It's more farked up that it cost him 10k to break a leg. But thats apparently the country Americans want.
 
2013-08-22 06:30:56 PM
No doubt this guy has caught some bad breaks, but he's working 70 hours a week cleaning sewers. He's not living with his parents because he can't afford his own place, he's living with them because he doesn't want to live in the kind of place he can afford.

School loans are pretty hard to get rid of but you would think he would have a case with the school closing before he could finish.

Yep. I'm waiting for most of the rest of my generation to wake up to just how hard the Boomers have farked us.
 
2013-08-22 06:33:33 PM
No school = less debt + more time to work. Now what do these guys make, $12 an hour? So let's be conservative and assume he clears at least $1,500 a month. He can't afford a $400 a month for a room in a 3-bedroom house? Bull. Living with his parents was just the more comfortable option. That's fine, but don't blame the economy for lack of basic ambition.

I don't think that guy dresses like that for fun. I know some guys wear Carhart and work boots as casual wear, but that's just ridiculous.

Doesn't really matter if you still live with your parents. Hell I got the most tail of my life right after college. This guy is just prob fat or ugly or both, or has no game.

If he's spending seventy hours a week in a sewer, his standards can't be all THAT high.

It will be kind of interesting to see what happens to baby boomers that end up in assisted living as the money in social security dries up.

Nah, at least for that $10k he got a healed leg. He's got nothing to show for that $60k.

He does but only if the loans were federally guaranteed and not private. The school closing before education can be completed is one of the few ways a federal loan can be dismissed. The other one is death.

At 18 I moved out of my parent's house and never looked back. Not even for that first terrifying summer break after my first year of college. (4 guys living in one small room, looking for apartments, trying to scrape by on $5-$10 a week in food heated on a hot plate. Good times.)
