Long article but definitely worth the read. ALL of this is exactly what I’ve been struggling with for the past 10 years as a recession graduate of 2008. Sadly, as the article states, millennials are going to be much worse off during the next decades of our lives if we don’t start making informed decisions about the people we vote into office (and actually get...
