Millennials: The Entitled or Excluded generation?

opinion, Uncategorized

If you’re a young person you’ll be well versed in the theory that you’re a selfish millennial who needs to lay off the lattes and smashed avos. But does this stack up?

With a series of issues like housing affordability, employment opportunities and increased uni fees disproportionately affecting Australia’s youth, being a millennial isn’t just the privileged bed of roses it’s often been been painted to be.

Jan Fran from SBS’ ‘The Feed’, Jacqui Mckenzie a Policy Advocate at Youth Action, Dr Troy Sarina a specialist in employee relations and the head of marketing management at Macquarie University and Sajaheat Mara, a Member of Australian Taxpayers Alliance and Macquarie University’s Liberal Club joined me on a discussion panel to discuss. 

 

 

A media student with a blog? How original.

About this blog

Hello Pals,

I will be using and abusing this free  internet space to write- and occasionally rant- about areas of personal interest for the benefit of no-one in particular. This blog will make you laugh, as I have an overwhelming tendency to do dumb things and will happily write about them ; it might make you cry, as Australian politics are a bitter and soul sucking study; and it could make you bound around your bedroom in a euphoric fit of happiness as you see your own thoughts and opinions expressed and realise you aren’t alone in this big, bad world.*

Stay tuned friend and foe,

Lara
