Us eighties teenagers get it, too. Boomers were our parents *and* yours. Us Generation X'ers might be your parents, too, and in that case, they're your Meemaw and Pop-Pop.
Yeah, the economy tanked so bad that a lot of Boomers lost their retirement. They’re occupying the seats we started to get, but never completely occupied in the early aughts.
tl;dr: 80’s kids get it too.
p.s. Generation Jones, if my older sisters are any indication, some of you 70’s kids might get it, too.
p.p.s. It doesn’t matter what generation you’re in when you occupy the lower two or three quintiles of income distribution, anyway. Rich fuckers are taking it all.
p.p.p.s. Fuck intergenerational fighting: Meemaw and Pop-Pop aren’t rich, which is why they’re still working, and chances are, neither are you.
