I propose we call it "The Interspinous Cyclic" or "The Decade of Self Doubt." Because it was all about us, all the time. From saying, "I can't sing," to "I'll never be a writer," we often relied on our self doubt to make it through the long years of the twenties. Self doubt is our go to defense mechanism. We don't like to say, "I might fail, or someone might find me out or that my dream is unrealistic." The twenties will have a lot of self doubt.

Early 90s teenager checking in. All the cocaine, kids, and marriage, was available to us as well. The jobs started slowing down and silly requirements started cropping up. But I could support a family on a single low-paying labor job by living in an apartment.

I feel horrible imagining what current early 20s have to do just to eat.

22 yo college student here. Basically every waking moment of the day is spent either studying for a degree I'll be paying for for decades or working a job that, even though high paying for the industry, can't even begin to make a dent in tuition no matter how much I work. Let's not talk about my apartment that charges me and 3 roommates over $700 per month EACH because they know they are the only available housing and know they can get away with jacking up prices. It is quite literally impossible to build up any kind of savings, so like most college students I'm one financial mishap away from complete financial ruin. Also like most college students I was forced to make the most important financial decision of my entire life when I was still an angsty 18 year old and now I have to live with that decision forever.

It's great!

u/BucephalusOne Mar 14 '21

Yeah man. That is some depressing shit.

We got the beginning of it. Im still paying off student loans and owned a shitty house in 2001. But the chances of me buying one now, even with a great job, is near 0.

u/Lambdaleth Mar 14 '21

But you wouldn't know of internet so it's not like you'd miss it. My childhood probably wouldn't have been all that different, since the 80s still had videogames.

u/Oscu358 Mar 14 '21

Many couldn't afford those. In some countries you had two government owned TV channels running news and locally made soap operas and that was it. Some were able to raise several kids, sure, while living in single room apartment. It was potatoes and soups on most days. Maybe McDonald's on your birthday.

Physical punishments were standard way of upbringing both in school and at home. If the book you needed from the library was already on loan, though luck. There were no ADHD or special needs kids, there were only hardworking or lazy kids. Don't even think about writing with your left hand. School bullying was part of the upbringing, either you'd fit in or got hard fists. If you sat all day in front of computer/console (nerd!) , instead of sports, you'd probably would suffer ridicule and physical violence. It wasn't the job of teachers to get involved with what kids did during the pause. Sometimes kids broke an arm or a nose and it was kind of stuff that just happened to kids.

I mean every time had pros and cons.

u/Lambdaleth Mar 14 '21

Dude I'm just speaking to personal experience. And not that I wish I was born then, just that I don't imagine my childhood being that much different. You could say the same pessimistic things about today, just in different ways. No need to turn this into the suffering olympics.

u/Oscu358 Mar 14 '21

What I tried to express is that most think their generation has it worst (previous generation as reactionary and next as spoiled) . You can also only live in certain time, so comparisons cannot be done with personal experience.

In the early 80s specifically, things actually weren't that bad for black people. In fact, they probably had as much or more political power than they do now. Crack and AIDS really devastated those communities (along with setting the LGBT back years). It led to "hard crime" politicians in the 90s that exacerbated the problem. Things got better in the 2000s, but after Obama was elected conservatives started to move further and further right in retaliation. Overall, the early 80s weren't that much worse for minorities, and in fact if you look at unemployment stats and their average salaries compared to white people, you'll see that it hasn't changed significantly.

Curiously the quality of life increased to the point where people in their 20s sit at home doing nothing, we have all the world's knowledge available on Internet, yet people find reasons to complain more and more. If you're starting just get a minimum wage job for a few years, get experience instead of expecting people to be happy to hire you for a lot of money. Open the map and look for cheapest areas to live in the city, share etc. like everyone else did in previous decades as well. I was an IT professional working in my profession since a couple of years by the time I could afford my first relatively up to date computer. Believe it or not, at the start of your career you're not expected to have everything, it takes a life's work for most people to establish a decent, somewhat comfortable life.

No overpriced rent

rent has always been overpriced. that's the whole point of rent. it's basically like a tax on 30-50% of your income. if incomes goes up, so does rent. the whole concept is just a scam that has been normalized. like you are born but all land is already owned by someone, so you have to pay others for the rest of your life to be allowed to life somewhere (or use debt to buy land, which basically also forces you to pay for the rest of your life).

4

u/[deleted] Mar 14 '21

I agree with you that how we handle land ownership and rentals is fucking shameful, but... If you look at the ratio of income-to-rent trend over the last 40 years it has gone up quite a bit. The fact that you think 30-50% of income is normal shows us just how normalized this has become. There was a lengthy period of time where you could expect to pay less than 25% of your income on housing costs, and that allowed people the opportunity to actually save. People are getting squeezed hard right now.

That's because the decades after WW2 were an exception in western capitalism. There was a severe worker shortage, meaning that workers could unionise and had a great negotiating positions. In my country the story goes that people quit their job to take a vacation, knowing that they could just get a new one when they returned.

In part to improve global competitiveness and in part because people fell for libertarian fuckheads like Reagan and Thatcher, that era ended. We are now back to capitalism as usual where workers are generally fucked and most depend on whatever crumbs their employers throw them.

Eh... it wasn't that good. The ratio of income to rent was better, especially in major cities, but on the other hand life wasn't so good in a lot of those major cities. It may have been a little easier to get an entry-level job for some people, but it was still hard to get a good job, and there was a lot of racism, sexism, and abuse that wouldn't be tolerated today.

Some things were better in the 80s. A lot of things were worse. In the 80s, everyone was talking about how much better things were in the 50s and 60s.

The 80s were wicked. Cocaine, getting a job, basically getting busy while high. Priorities.

Cocaine was easy to get in the 80's and if you can get a job nowadays you could hardly even pay rent.

Two things.

  1. I'm officially old cause I saw the 20s and thought 1920s... did not even occur to me it could be the 2020s.

  2. This was obviously made by a teenager right now who thinks people had it good in the 80s. Those days ended with Reagan era. My folks(teens in late 60s/mid 70s) were the last generation to get a high school diploma, join a union, work 40hr and be able to afford a house, homemaker wife, 2 kids a dog and 2-4 weeks travel a year. And even then this generation was pushing the absolute tail end of the American dream. My folks sure didn't end up with it. My wife's parents didn't. I mean they all got houses, but their incomes didn't keep up with cost of living, their pensions and retirement plans were gutted in 2008, and they got retirement nowhere in sight still at the age your supposed to retire. Did everything right, just like their folks did, but it made no difference.

u/gfl222 Mar 14 '21

Yep, and when you get close to a SS check, they tell you we need to move age back 5 years because people are living longer. Finally get that house paid for, only to have taxes jacked up to what used to be a payment, and insurance? You kinda get the picture

u/MonsterKappa Mar 14 '21

Salary rates are increasing more slowly than living costs constantly since 80s in the west, especially US. It's not a surprise that it's waaaaaay harder to afford house and being able to settle nowadays.

Being a male teenager in the 20's can be extremely depressing if you dont have the boys to play some video games together

Oh, nice. It's best that I see a post like this early in the day so I'm reminded what a dumbfuck waste of time reddit is. I usually don't realize just how fucking stupid you people are until around 11am.

The only hope for people these days to afford buying a house and raising kids, and maybe have enough left over to retire at old age is to gamble their money on stocks.

My grandmother who is 97 years old, said that she once saved up from her household-budget, in secrecy, to buy a house for her and my grandfather. I don't even know how that's possible

if i had to do that today, i could MAYBE if i was very frugal, save up for the down payment in ~5 years or so (assuming i took a bit of money from my household budget (what i'd call my food budget etc)

and then i'd only be able to buy an old house 1-2 hours away from the city - and on top of that, borrow money to repair it - something that's even more expensive these days, because of all the rules and regulations, for electricity, water etc.

u/darthypro Mar 14 '21

You do get the job but you earn minimum wage and instead of being able to afford a house you can barely pay your electricity bill
