OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
Many young Americans are choosing to rent apartment rather than purchase homes due to expensive student loans, high unemployment, and low wages – we simply can’t afford to buy!
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
The housing market makes up 18% of the United States’ gross domestic product (GDP is the total value of goods and services produced in the US). When people do not invest in housing, the entire economy suffers.
Experts believe that the housing market will only improve if young Americans can find jobs.
OUR TIME OPINION
It is critical for the U.S. economy that young Americans are able to find jobs. To help create jobs for young Americans, sign our One Million New Jobs petition atwww.ourtime.org!
