1. Working in a full-time job and still having to pick up a side hustle just so you can support yourself and be financially independent from your parents.
2. Still hearing Baby Boomers saying that you’re lazy.
3. Calling out homophobia, transphobia, and racism... and being told you’re being overly sensitive.
4. Constantly being put down by middle-aged managers who don’t like to try new things because “that’s not how things work around here”.
5. Dreaming about fulfilling employment that satisfies your soul, not just your bank account.
6. And consequently being told that you’re being too greedy to even demand that from life.
7. Not being able to afford a house or a flat.
8. And spending 60% of your pay cheque on rent.
9. Savings? What savings?
10. Having literally 10p in your bank account at the end of the month.
11. But being constantly shamed by economists for not spending enough.
12. Or spending too much. We just can’t win now, can we?
13. Having tens of thousands of pounds in student loans to pay off.
14. Valuing experiences over possessions, which baffles a great majority of people born before the 1980s.
15. Being told that you rely on the internet too much.
16. But at the same time knowing those who complain about young people and technology are the ones who constantly need help with using it.
17. And finally, being outvoted by older generations even though they won’t be around long enough to live with the consequences of their decisions.
