The Unsexy Truth About Millennials: They’re Poor — If you’re wondering why millennials don’t have much sex, and don’t buy cars, forget social theorizing: the harsh truth lies in their near-empty wallets.

Millenials are the most screwed over generation in America today.
As a millenial myself, I can tell you that it has not been pleasant so far.
That’s why it’s incredibly frustrating for me whenever I hear someone in the media maligning Millenials as being entitled or something to that effect, when economically the most entitled generation ever have been the Baby Boomers, and they are the ones doing the most complaining.
According to a recent report by the U.S Census Bureau, millenials on average earn about $20,000 less than their parents did at the same age, and millenials are most likely among the generations to live in poverty and have to live with a family member.
This is the result of Baby Boomers and Gen Xers presiding over a government which has successively over the course of 40 years, extracted the middle class of its all wealth with a series of policies designed to make the rich richer, and weaken labor unions in this country to the point that they are toothless.
With all of the wealth and power that America had when the Baby Boomers were coming of age and taking over this nation from The Greatest Generation, they could have set up America to be a nation of great inter-generational wealth that could have guaranteed amazing things like universal healthcare, free public college and a better safety net for retirement. Instead they squandered it on stupid wars and tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans which shifted the tax burden of this country to the middle class.

The Unsexy Truth About Millennials: They’re Poor

If you’re wondering why millennials don’t have much sex, and don’t buy cars, forget social theorizing: the harsh truth lies in their near-empty wallets.

Millennials are not some vast unsolvable mystery. According to a report from the U.S. Census Bureau (PDF), they earn $2,000 less than their parents did at a comparable age, they are more likely to live in poverty, and they are more likely to live at home.
But Baby Boomers and Gen Xers still seem to find it hard to believe that basic economic math can explain much of the younger generation’s behavior.
After several news outlets, including The Daily Beast, reported that rates of millennial sexual inactivity in early adulthood are surprisingly high, armchair social theorists came out in force to blame it on everything but the fact that nearly one-third of young adults are still living at home.
One right-wing college news website found a way to attribute the finding to millennials’ desire for “safe spaces.”
Conservative New York Times columnist Ross Douthat speculated on Twitterthat it was an example of the “porn paradox,” whatever that means. Others attributed it, predictably, to the effects of technology or increased anxiety. A Rutgers biological anthropologist even suggested that millennials might be too “motivated” and “ambitious” to even bother with sex.

  1. Well you probably should better define “millennial” There is really vast differences and “subcultures” in this stereotype. The stereotype that people have trouble empathizing with are people with big college debt who majored in re-creative studies, pierced, tatted gamers living in their parent’s basement watchinng netflix on their parents password. This group is probably more of a myth propagated to keep us from seeing the real economic havoc around us,

  2. I’d say one of the biggest factors of the poverty of the millennials is the outsourcing of Manufacturing by the globalist. The second one would be on them. Half the kids are born out of wedlock and half the people who git married are divorced within 5 years. Can’t create wealth that way!

      • Thanks, Sista. It’s a darn shame when stating the most basic obvious statements is revolutionary in this 1984 Animal Farm Brave New World THEY are Transforming us into. Stay Strong and don’t submit, even if resistance is futile, It WILL be rewarded in the Hereafter!

          • Mess with da FED, ya END up DEAD. Or the IMF or World Bank. Just ask JFK or Kaddafi!
            The very same International BANKSTERS that own/control da FED/World Bank/IMF also deindustrialized the USA and built Red China.
            Any fool with a little knowledge of world affairs should KNOW the Hun Chinese are the most prejudiced people in the World. How da BANKSTERS think THEY would control the Red Chinese after THEY made them a MAJOR World power is a little like the scorpion and da Frog story.
            All I can do to explain this is that THEY ALL must be controlled by Satan to bring da End Times as written in Revelation!
            The other totally ridiculous question is why have the Elites made war on Christian Europe when THEY know the Muslims they are replacing the indigenous people with will KILL them (ELITEs) first as commanded by the Quran!
            We Truly live in interesting times. Git right with G-d and save as many souls as you can along da way. End Times be Acommin!

          • Twenty years ago I was in prayer for eight days. At the hour my husband was taken off life support God came. You couldn’t see Him but oh you could feel Him and no words describe how Wonderful. The nurse said to me this has never happen in my 22 year career but I think I feel God. God was in charge and I wasn’t allowed to answer her but she was feeling just a tiny bit of what I was feeling. I won the lottery that day, God stayed for over an hour, then slowly pulled away out of my right side. I became a better person and a stronger born again Christian. I believe we are very near to the end and it brings me great Joy that might see Jesus return before I die. My second husband and I are in our Bibles daily and I love reminding everyone online their life purpose is to serve our Lord. Never forget Mac God chose you from the beginning to live this remarkable time for His honor and glory forever.

          • I also wondered how the elites thought they were going to control the Muslim take over of Europe. They have so many fancy mansions in Europe! There is no way the elites will submit to Islamic law and being told what to do, but when the passive white Europeans in the cities around them are replaced by zealot Muslims, the head cutting will begin. Seems poorly thought out, unless Satan is betraying them.

          • IT must be Satan controlling both the evil scum. The Elites own 85% of teh world wealth and THEY want 99%. Talk about the LOVE of money and Power.
            I fully believe THEY think THEY will take over Islam and use it for the control of the masses by making it the Forced Religion of the Beast. It sure fits Revelation!
            THEY may pull this off. But HOW do THEY think THEY will control the Hun Chinese?
            Must be blinded by Satan!

          • You got it. I do still think the world can be a better place for all. Please visit and review Hanomy Manifesto. It’s a new social, financial, and political for the whole world. I am the author and have no affiliation with any group. I believe that once the mass aware of this way out, they will demand it. We have technology and knowledge to make it happen. Just need the will of the people. Thank you. Highlights of Hanomy:
            • Fundamental human needs met throughout life’s existence
            • Basic human rights observed everywhere
            • Sovereign debts worldwide are settled and eliminated

            • Financial contributions drawn from a portion of idle/unutilized money
            • No taxes on income, profit or spending

            • Power of money creation where it belongs – the people
            • An end to the fractional reserve system
            • Upheld free market principles (true capitalism but with social responsibility)
            • Decreased or dissolved inflation and hyperinflation

            • Improved care of the environment and world resources
            • A world we’re proud to claim and pass along

      • Basically it is due to social engineering. The Elites do NOT want a strong middle class. I’ve been walking around doin the ole crazy gray bearded semi-preacher man routine since 2010. When one of the yougins I’ve been a mentorin tells me that they knocked up a girl or the girl she’s she is in a family way, I’d tell them that NOW is the time to jump da broom and make it legit. Now with Obamacare I can NOT in good conscience do so unless one of them has a good job, and dat be highly unlikely.
        The last time I researched it in Kentucky If a family made less than 17 thousand then Obamacare was free. If slightly over only 68 bucks a month, not bad , BUT a 2500 deductible and a 50% copay. SO anyone could afford Obamacare at the bottom of the pay scale, BUT can NOT afford the cost of using it.
        So if a chick marries da soon to be Baby’s daddy and they are both workin at Burger King, they would make a little over 17 grand. They would be stuck with some big time medical costs and she would have her WICK and EBT card drastically reduced, also educational opportunities would be reduced. SO once again moral behavior is discouraged!
        So da gubermint encourages unwed mothers and even divorces due to it’s government policies. The obvious plan is to dumb down the masses and make em more violent and dependent.

  3. whom ever wrote this article doesn’t know much about how the world is run and how groupthink mindsets plays a significant role in society. Typical millennial.

  4. This way of arguing has a name in logic.
    It’s called ad hominem, and it is recognized by all experts as illegitimate and vicious.
    Argue ideas, not attack the views of others from the content of their wallets.
    Just dumb, almost as dumb as some the things Trump says.

  5. This article is spot on, except the author neglected to factor identity/ gender politics and institutionalized social engineering that are leaving our youth incapable seeing through the fog of their own oppression.

  6. You wrote this like you think the people are in control of the government? It’s the bankers who have sucked the wealth out of this country. Sure a bunch of traitor secret society members who call themselves congress critters did their bidding to make it ‘look like’ they are in control to us, but to blame whole generations, attacking your fellow American is falling for their ‘divide and conquer’ games.

  7. At the top of the article this genius writes that mills are making $20k less than their parents did at the same age. Near the end of the article he says it’s $2k less. Which is it? Get your ducks in a row before posting. One thing I KNOW mills don’t do is PROOFREAD. 🙂

  8. …the article initially states that the millennial generation makes “20,000” less than boomers at the same age, but later says the difference is “2,000”. I would say that if the figure is 20,000…that is significant, and can be attributed to poor decision making, the declining economy…or a combination of factors. Either way…and especially if the correct figure is 2,000…so what? Many Baby-Boomers worked our butts off as young as nine or ten year olds, all the way through to adulthood. We learned about work ethic, hard work, smart-work, leadership…(both good &bad). We worked towards continuous improvement in work and as parents…(sometimes not so well in the parenting). We received raises and increased leadership roles and responsibilities. In spite of being bled to death for government programs we never volunteered for, and the need to purchase private retirement and supplemental medical insurance and such, we worked 8-10-12 hours days…all hours of the day and night…and most of us provided very well for our families. If the difference is 2,000 or 20,000…suck it up, figure out a way to survive and then thrive…and get to living your life. I love the measurement for failure in millennials, that of still…”living at home”. I left home in my teens, worked a towboat down The Mississippi…and never looked back or returned to my home. When I did come back and resumed my career with McDonald’s, I shared an apartment. I’m dumfounded as to why millennials cannot share a house or an apartment? Bad credit? I don’t know, but a their age, they should be at work all the time, so why do they need more than a shared-roommate-arrangement? I made great money at McDonald’s and was able to hold the lease on the apartment. From there I used my experience to get a job with US DoD….(with zero college)…and went on to a 25 year, international career managing and teaching people to manage businesses in war zones and on military installations around the world. I am now retired with a nice pension. You have to go out in the world…find out what you like or have some talent in…(or is a simple job that makes good cash and you enjoy!)…and work at growing as a person. Then your wallet will grow as well.

  9. You talk as if the Baby Boomers are an organized force. They have been divided to be conquered just like everyone else. In 1963 following the right wing fascist coup carried out by the CIA when they killed Kennedy, the oldest Baby Boomer was 17 years old. The country has been controlled by the fascists who killed Kennedy since that time. Our elections are all frauds and the government functions like a crime gang. Solve the Kennedy assassination, take out the accessories after the fact and you will have a much better government. The Baby Boomers are bigger victims than the millennials as we have had our entire lives stolen by a criminal cabal. They give us perpetual war because they are heavily invested in the “defense” industry.
