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.
According to a new report, each of the 6.7 million young people currently without work is costing taxpayers $13,900 per year.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
According to researchers, the high levels of out-of-work young people will likely have long-term consequences, including a boost in poverty, increased reliance on social safety net programs and maybe even illegal activities.
OUR TIME OPINION
Considering how much it costs the taxpayer to provide safety nets for all those out of work, it makes far more sense to invest in creating jobs than to continuously support those who can’t find work.
