It would be remiss not to bring up that the under 30 crowd overwhelmingly went for President Obama for a second term, and they will be handsomely rewarded — with more of the same. A Harvard study reported at The Examiner and picked up by Gateway Pundit shows just how “duped” these young’ns are:
A comprehensive new Harvard University report on Americans under 30, the so-called Millennials, shows that the economy is having a crushing impact, with just 62 percent working, and of those, half are toiling at part-time jobs.

But over half, or 59 percent of those aged 18-29, have gone to college and The report reveals that time in college is a better sign of social status than income, mostly because jobs aren’t available.
Businessweek reported on this “lost generation” last year, which stated that “only 46% of people aged 16-24 had jobs in September, the lowest since the government began counting in 1948.” And the economic battle fatigue has sunk in, according to a Gallup poll last year that showed:
