Re: Spoiled kids of the 80s?
We grew up poor, but it was college was a lot cheaper, and it was very easy for both of us in the late 80's early 90's to pick a craft that paid, go to college, and easily get a job right after graduation. I actually had my first nursing job lined up before I graduated, as did most of my classmates.
Now nursing school, as well as school to be a resp therapist, ultrasound tech, physical therapist, paramedic, etc are much harder to get into, and much fewer opportunities after graduation. I fear very much for my children, that they will not be able to get good employment..........
They will have had an easier childhood, but a much harder, more competitive young adulthood.
