    Imagine how much worse the lazy millennial problem will become if Andrew Yang and his UBI plan win. Scary.

    Ha! That's what I see where I'm at too -- the Millennials are the new Yuppies, generally earning large paychecks in the tech industry and driving a massive boom in housing, expensive lofts, high end brewpubs and restaurants, all local sporting and music events selling out like mad, etc. And these kids have been cool, not living up to their negative hype at all. Could be the nature of my metro region though, lots of sunshine, space, and money.

I use the term millennial to describe lazy fuckers in there 20s and 30s and on the government dime

    I see the same thing at my job all the time. We do 90% prevailing wage work. The wages are sick anywhere between 45 and 70 a hour. Most of the guys working are in there mid to late 50s. Younger guys come and go pretty fast. They generally work hard for the first few weeks then burn out or think they are above the physical labor aspects of the job. I just dont understand what the thought process is.

    Is $35 an hour considered good pay? Cause thatís what I make. Iím a defense contractor. Lots of guys in my business are making quite a bit more than that.

    I guess it depends on what youíre doing. $1400 a week based on 40 hours isnít anything to sneeze at. I make more than that but was wondering who isnít taking a $70k a year job

    There was a time in my life Iíd kill for a 70k job. If you look at the average income of Americans itís well below 70k.

    Most donít know what a good days work is. Too used to A/C and when they have to exert effort they buckle.

    As a younger man I would have loved to have a job pay that amount

    I wanna know what kind of job pays $70 an hour. Only the engineers in my industry make that and thatís a high end engineer.

    Federally funded construction jobs. They are required to pay Davis beacon wages. Which is determined by the local unions. Every state has a different wage structure.

    Never heard of it. Probably cause I went the college route instead of the trade route. Iím so mechanically uninclined I can barely screw in a light bulb. Lol

    Pre engineered metal buildings and roofs. Prevailing wage for the military bases that i do most of my work on are around $30/hr for general laborer and go up from there. We did a solar project in NJ in 2012 that had a laborer rate at $54, skilled tradesmen at $72, and foreman at $81

    Yeah pisses me off to be one (27) I literally donít have any friends my age because they are all idiots. There are a few that are decent but thereís very little in between. I work 2 jobs plus run my own business and pickup side jobs all the time, and these lazy knuckleheads wonít get 1 job unless it pays ďa living wageĒ

    Get out of your moms basement, get some freaking work experience and put some damn work ethic in and youíll make plenty more than a living wage...
