Comment on Limited Investment Opportunities by zeejaythorne.
I think you are right on most of these fronts. And I’m glad to see a post that doesn’t bash millennials for the problems they did not create. In my field, I see so many 80+ year olds working because they “wouldn’t want to be bored” or haven’t planned properly financially. In one office, a man was literally paid a dollar a year and health insurance. With 60+ years in the field, of course the employer wanted his expertise at the bargain. He was not training up young workers though. He could have been an amazing resource. Instead he prevented others from getting a job and knowledge. It was so frustrating. Of course, they did not hire anyone when their internships or trials ended. They kept their free labor and wished us well.
