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.
Young Americans 19-29 years of age are highly entrepreneurial, social media-savvy, and prefer freedom and flexibility in the workplace.
47% of young Americans surveyed work or companies with less than 100 employees. 30% work for companies with between 100-1500 employees.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
Not wanting to be under-employed in a retail job, many young workers are looking to the start-up industry for opportunities; for small business environments, where their social-media driven data-mining and marketing skills can be put to more immediate use.
OUR TIME OPINION
Unemployment and under-employment present serious hurdles to young Americans. Our generation is increasingly drawn to start-ups and small businesses that also tend to be more socially responsible; they are entities willing and able to utilize the younger generation’s 21st century skill set.
