We know things should be better.
We're graduating from high school and college and have to move back in with our parents to make ends meet. We're in jobs that don't pay enough, or that aren't leading to a career we want. And that's if we have a job at all; the unemployment rate for our generation is even higher than for the nation as a whole. Many have school loans to pay and have to postpone major life choices because of the economy.
We want to stand on our own two feet, but this economy keeps pulling us back down.
The recovery has been too slow and the national debt has gone too high. Our leaders have let us down.
We have the chance to try something else. With Crossroads Generation, we want to start a conversation about that new direction. About why things haven't gotten better, but also about how things can get better.
That conversation starts today.
