Some Gen-Zers are having an emotional meltdown on social media about the world of work and struggles of surviving in the era of ‘Bidenomics.’ America’s youth appears to be done with President Biden, who could be their ‘great-great-grandfather,’ as a recent New York Times-Siena poll conducted over the summer showed the president’s approval rating with the youth is in the dumps.
Let’s begin with one Gen-Zer who describes the horrors of working a 9-5 job.
“I don’t have time for anything, and I’m, like, so stressed out,” she said near the end of the video.

In a separate video, this Gen-Zer was fired up. She said, “Working a 9-5 is the biggest f*cking scam out there.” She said her numerous jobs “could not pay her f*cking bills.”
The struggle is real for the new generation, which is just now learning that working a 9-5 isn’t as easy as college. pic.twitter.com/FvAeYkTddt

Another Gen-Zer said, “I did the math – you can’t retire in this economy.”
A lot of people seem to think this mindset is unique to Gen Z. It’s not.
Every generation goes through this. Watch Reality Bites, where a group of 20-somethings in the early 90s deal with the exact same struggles and emotions as described in this video.

A New York Times-Siena poll conducted from July 23 to 27 revealed that only 4% of individuals aged 18-30 hold a very favorable view of the president, compared to 17% among the general population. This outcome, stemming from what is perceived as Biden’s failures in the economy, indicates a significant shift in support among the younger working-class demographic, posing a potential crisis for the Democratic Party in next year’s presidential election cycle.
Also, Gen-Zers are making it clear they will not fight any wars for the military-industrial complex.

Seems like gender studies is not preparing these young folks for the real world.
Serious note, I started the magazine when I was a journalist and worked six days a week 12 hours a day!
