  • Making less than dad did

    Do you think your generation is doing better or worse than the previous generation?

    What do you think is causing this?

    Making less than dad did - American men in their 30s are earning less than their father's generation did, challenging a long-held belief that each generation will be better off than the one that preceded it, according to a new study published Friday.

    Relying on Census Bureau figures, the study's authors found that after adjusting for inflation, men in their 30s in 2004 had a median income of about $35,000 per year, for a 12 percent drop compared with $40,000 per year for men in the same age group in 1974.

    That stood in stark contrast to men in their 30s in 1994, who earned 5 percent more than their fathers did.

    I personally feel we are doing less. Job secruity is almost non-existant, there are no pensions, employees are overworked and underpaid compared to the cost of living
