Strapped: Why America's 20- And 30-Somethings Can't Get Ahead Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drowning in student loans? Cant afford to get married, buy a home, have children? Up to your ears in credit card debt? At last, a book for the under-35 generation that explains why its not their fault, and what can be done about it. Strapped offers a groundbreaking look at the new obstacle course facing young adults. Getting ahead, argues commentator and policy maven Tamara Draut, is getting harder. A college degree is the new high school diploma-and costs a fortune to obtain. Good jobs are scarcer thanks to stagnant wages and disappearing benefits. And, the cost of everything-starter homes, health coverage, child care-keeps going up. Witty and wise, Strapped brims with ideas for fashioning a new kind of America in which every young person can go to college, buy a home, and start a family. The future starts here.

Synopsis:

For the 60 percent of people between the ages of 18-34 who find themselves consistently behind the financial eight ball, this text offers a groundbreaking look at the new obstacle course facing young adults as they try to build careers, buy homes, and start families.
