No job and still living with your parents are in their basement all the new Pew Research Center survey shows that middle aged parents -- recently.
Providing more financial support to the grown children join in the company now -- Kirk with in the free market group.
Turning point USA Charlie you don't think that it has to be that way -- -- Not necessarily and I think that there's two sides why this is happening there is a policy side and there's a cultural side I think on the policy side -- Obama -- that was passed.
Now young people can stand their parents -- 126 but the cultural side is that parents are accepting the notion that kids can stay longer and longer at home.
And I think that there is an attachment to that but they don't want their kids -- get a job in some ways they want them to him on the stay home.
And is a big promise that I mean I know kids their 29 and 31 that are -- that would limit their parents and grand at a job market is not that great.
But there has to come a time where -- think personal responsibility get back in the job market.
What does this go with the a policy side first and you know the president got got a whole lot of young votes by touting the fact that name listen you can stay in the basement to parents and I've got to cover the -- -- things like medical and you know don't feel guilty about it don't worry about it so.
I mean that's that's that's a huge impetus for four or a huge reason for kids not to want him about them think kids -- -- really -- -- really.
You know 242526.
-- -- How -- how do you overcome that how does your generation sort of get over that idea that maybe I should get out there -- -- -- -- but how do you penetrate difference.
Writes I think we need to talk about a couple words and focus on them opportunity prosperity and entrepreneurship those are things that young people can understand and freedom.
Opportunities a big one young people want to be as successful as they possibly can be.
Than they would want a free market right now we explain that in the correct context they will understand the tenants of all of.
And every -- -- -- it -- planning now for the young viewers and in the right context because again.
And -- -- -- that it's those things obviously makes sense when you save them but how come it's not resonating what would you -- up -- young kids sitting here right now that this don't.
Right so the my argument is that's -- you wanna be as successful as you possibly can be -- wanna be the next Bill Gates and our Zuckerberg we need to ask those questions and young people can understand that.
But I think a big problem with necessarily conservative movement.
Is a focus on social issues I think that clouds the fiscal truth and young people can resonate with the fiscal issues.
80% of young people I talk to can agree that capitalism is -- most prosperous system for us in the future when -- start again issues of marriage and abortion.
-- -- turn up they won't listen -- the fiscal side so the young viewers out there here's what I'll say.
Capitalism works capitalism as moral and if we -- that the tenants of free market.
Entrepreneurship we can -- -- prosperous country again and you don't have a living your parents' basements -- 35.
Okay now this is what the tractors are saying capitalism is is not moral.
We've run into a lot of boom and bust cycles in the -- have gotten richer the war gotten poorer.
And it's not fair I mean that's essential thing to the president's reelection in his first election.
And last year I -- -- Webster's dictionary.
They -- the top ten words of the year import -- was capitalism with socialism so there's a real Tug of war going on right now.
On the on the call on the other side of this with the parents wanting you.
Other generations that have -- -- this generation so clinging to their kids.
Right I think there -- an interesting dynamic and I think there is a cultural aspect that that parents are staying attached -- young people.
But they -- governments really want to see them going to a terrible job market.
And be unemployed.
But there is that there's a harsh reality I remember my dad's saying you know -- -- years when he had to make it himself you know his dad did not necessarily.
Pay for everything so he was 29 there isn't there was a time and you to take a minimum wage job and I may be live in -- neighborhood that was in his luxurious the wanted to drop them.
And I think we're losing met with the younger generation that we don't allow them the fly and our -- I gotta agree with -- there was a time we all did that it was expected about and that's why America became the greatest country in the world thanks a lot you gotta you -- tough battle ahead and I'm glad you out there fighting for --
