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.
Millions of struggling working-class young adults, many in battleground states like Florida, Colorado and Wisconsin, are up for grabs in this election and could prove to be one of the most potentially powerful voting blocs.
Roughly 18 million young adults who are not attending college constitute about 40% of the eligible voters between the ages of 18 and 29, and many of them are politically independent.
While these struggling young adults may appear disengaged, they are also highly persuadable and looking for candidates who will take their concerns and struggles seriously.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
While our generation hasn’t yet made up its mind who is to blame for the current economy, nor who is most likely to fix it, it is expected that the way our generation votes this November will shape who controls Washington for years to come.
OUR TIME OPINION
Our generation needs politicians who will listen to our concerns and needs, and take them seriously.
