North Carolina Justice Center explains that millennials face pressures previous generations were not subject to.

Millennials have a reputation for being overeducated and undermotivated when it comes to working and saving money. But a forthcoming report from the left-leaning North Carolina Justice Center explains that millennials face pressures previous generations were not subject to, and that state and national policies compound their difficulties in building wealth and finding good jobs. 

Allan Freyer, director of the center’s Workers’ Rights Project, and Brian Kennedy II, public policy fellow in its Budget & Tax Center talk about challenges millennials face in today's work force.

Host Frank Stasio discusses the findings with Allan Freyer, director of the center’s Workers’ Rights Project, and Brian Kennedy II, public policy fellow in its Budget & Tax Center.
