Young people are screwed.
Only 54% of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 are employed -- that's the lowest number ever recorded since tracking began more than 60 years ago.
There's now a 15% gap in employment between young people and all working Americans -- that's also the largest gap ever recorded.
On top of that -- they're drowning in over one trillion dollars worth of student loan debt.
This is quickly becoming a lost generation of Americans -- which might explain why there's an Occupy Wall Street movement out there.
The choice is simple: live on the streets or take to the streets.
