... who are now in their 30s and 40s. The following article is from 2002: The young are growing up poor - smh.com.au I see there have been almost 15 years since the article, but it reports the same gloomy outlook for young people as most articles today. While I feel commercial media continues to peddle this trash, what are peoples thoughts of the actual situation? Are young people still getting into property in similar percentages to the past or have things changed? If so, are they values, living expenses or it genuinely more difficult to buy a property to live in?
