Home Ownership Drop

Apparently there are fewer homeowners in the US today than there were last year. Thanks Obama. (That’s a joke by the way.) It is at a new 20-year low, and the article can be found here: .

Sorry, only Baby Boomers and Generation Y own these homes now.

So Generation X is having some home ownership issues. From some other sources I was reading the employment factor is actually pretty huge. There are more Baby Boomers still working than ever projected previously, and when you have highly skilled and experienced labor in the workforce, it makes it much harder for Generation X to break into those positions.

Not much we can do about it at this point, but hopefully we can start creating more jobs so it is less of an issue for Generation Y.
