I'm currently reading Tamara Draut's Strapped: Why America's 20- and 30-Somethings Can't Get Ahead. The book discusses how college loans, high housing costs, and child care costs combine to put today's generation in an economic bind that their parents didn't face. A full review will come once I've finished the book.
But it doesn't bode well for the book. In the introductory chapter, there's the following quote:
One out of three young adults--a full 17.9 million 18-to-34-year-olds--don't have health insurance, making this the age group with the largest percentage of uninsured. They're not going without health-care coverage out of some sense of invincibility either; in fact, only 3 percent of young workers are uninsured because they declined available coverage.
Do you see what's wrong with that quote? Think about it, and check the comments for my discussion.
