Demos Releases New Data Analysis & Polling: The Economic State Of Young America
NEW YORK-- Today's 20-somethings are the first generation, as a whole, to face downward economic mobility compared to their parents' generation, according to a new report from national policy center Demos and youth advocacy organization Young Invincibles. The report, entitled "The State of Young America," details how the Great Recession has intensified the impact of thirty years of negative economic trends across young Americans' lives, starting with an analysis of wages: Almost all young people make less than the previous generation at the same age, with young men making $.90 for each dollar their fathers earned, and those with only a high school diploma far less.
