A Third Of America's 18-34 Years Olds Live With Their Parents

Increasing numbers of young Americans are heading to college, where they’re racking up debt to pay for rapidly increasing tuition costs.

Those graduating are being confronted by a challenging jobs market, which eventually leads many to just drop out of the labour force altogether.
