Millennials’ Dangerous Growing Addiction to Government

When a friend and recent college graduate informed me he was receiving food stamps, I was floored. He is a healthy, educated, intelligent individual, but, like many of the millennials I know, entitled. Completely and utterly entitled.

“Is something wrong?” I asked my friend. “Are you going through a tough time or something? I know you’re working and everything seems to be going well with your job.”

“It’s nothing like that,” he assured me. “My job is with AmeriCorps though, and they just don’t pay enough. That’s why I’m eligible for food stamps. I figure, they aren’t paying me what I should get paid so it seems fair I should be eligible for government assistance.”

Somewhere in Fairfax County, Virginia, George Washington is rolling over in his grave.

AmeriCorps is a federal volunteer program—and by “volunteer,” I mean you earn money—that is considered to be quite prestigious by many employers and government agencies. Made up almost exclusively of young college students and graduates, AmeriCorps places individuals into community service organizations, providing a steady stream of cheap labor.

CONVERSATIONS

  1. When we read articles like this let’s try not to clump all millennials together. My husband and I are 20 and have been married for a year. We both are in our third year of college and my husband works his butt off. We have a nice place and are completely independent. We don’t have any government assistance besides school grants. We aren’t in the military or have children. We do not use credit cards. All glory to God. The point is to not write off our entire generation. Thank you.
