Rahm Emanuel’s surprisingly good idea to prep high schoolers for the real world

This may be tough for Republicans to admit, but Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel may have come up with a good idea. Emanuel — the focus of television show mockery (remember the dead fish?) and conservative criticism for his time in the White House — wants to make sure high school seniors are prepared for what’s […]

One solution to expensive millennial housing? More millennials need to work in construction

Nationwide, 35 percent of millennials now own homes, according […]

Another city will raise its minimum wage to $15, despite studies proving it hurts workers

Despite new facts from a recent study from the University of Washington (UW) proving Seattle’s minimum wage hike had a negative impact on low-wage workers, another city is marching forward with their own #FightFor15 law. Minneapolis’ City Council will finalize their vote on Friday to increase their minimum wage to $15, according to the StarTribune. Small businesses […]

Millennial poll: Student loans are a bigger threat than North Korea

Coincidentally or not, on the day Otto Warmbier passed on, a poll was released showing a supermajority of millennials believe student loans pose a bigger threat than North Korea. Warmbier was held captive in North Korea until his recent release due to a medical emergency which reportedly led to his passing. So, are millennials not taking North […]

Harvard: California minimum wage hikes have led to major restaurant closings

Poll: Millennials most likely to say “Trump has made America great again”

They asked, “Do you think that Donald Trump has made America Great Again, or not?” Millennials were even more likely than seniors to say Trump […]

PPP 2020 poll: Trump beats Warren among millennials

A liberal-leaning polling group just released polling data on the election… the 2020 election. Please don’t roll your eyes.

Kamala Harris, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Vermont Sen. Bernie […]

Infrastructure Week, like much of Trump’s agenda, has been Russia-ed

This week was to be Infrastructure Week, the week President Trump revealed details of his agenda to rebuild crumbling American infrastructure and reclaim transportation as an issue Republicans control. What happened to Infrastructure Week? Russia. Russia took over the news, yet again, as former FBI Director James Comey is set to testify before the Senate […]

Infrastructure Week: Building roads is a conservative agenda

No Party has a monopoly on transportation. Democrats can point to President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal; Republicans can point to President Dwight Eisenhower’s Interstate Highway System. In modern politics, conservatives have resisted backing federal transportation initiatives because they’re expensive and can be managed by the states. Progressives usually back rail and transit, but resist building […]

In USA Today, Rhonda Abrams writes, “Millennials […]

Baseball’s best millennial slams participation trophies [VIDEO]

Speaking to a group of Little Leaguers […]

Trump budget would undo Obama’s massive student loan forgiveness program for the wealthy

Liberals are jumping on President Donald Trump’s budget and its proposed student loan reform. In particular, they are bemoaning the elimination of the “public service loan forgiveness” program. If you read the headlines, they accuse Trump of slashing and burning a program that benefits well-meaning students. Those criticisms are exaggerated. In reality, this program benefits […]

Despite not knowing a darn thing about it, 66% of millennials oppose Trump budget

Oh no, millennials are petitioning to start “National Millennial Day”

Two millennials’ attempt to battle negative millennial stereotypes not only reinforces millennial stereotypes — it will probably backfire and become a joke.

We’re also the most educated. […]

Is college worth it? Because student loan debt is crushing the American Dream

A new study from TD Ameritrade should serve as a stunning wake-up call to policymakers, but if their previous action is any indication, this report may be ignored. The question becomes: Is the nation okay with forcing millennials to delay true adulthood — financially, economically, and in regards to starting their families — until after they’re […]
