Zde mate vice o zivotnich perspektivach dnesnich absolventu emerickych skol:
Why were college students nationwide graduating with an average of nearly $20,000 in student loans? Why were her friends thousands of dollars in credit-card debt? Why did so many jobs for people under thirty-five involve a plastic name badge, last only short-term, and not include benefits? With record deficits and threats to Social Security, what kind of future was shaping up for our nation's kids?
One of the youngest-ever columnists for the Village Voice, Kamenetz rejects the blame and negative stigma which has branded her generation of twentysomethings. Contrary to popular stereotypes, the reason kids are moving back in with their parents, can't land career-path jobs, and take longer to graduate from college and settle down isn't just a widespread generational laziness or some other pervasive psychological flaw. The reason, Kamenetz argues, is overwhelmingly economic.
In Generation Debt, she talks to experts in economics, labor markets, the health-care industry, and education, and amasses a startling array of evidence that building a secure life, let alone surviving, is harder for young people today than it was 30 years ago. She meets young people from all over the country and all walks of life who are struggling to achieve their dreams despite layoffs, unsupportive parents, grinding low-wage jobs, and 25.99% APRs.
