Someone tweeted this story and although it’s from a Candian publication, I’m sure I’m not the only American who will find that it describes my predicament. Of course it doesn’t quite describe me. First off, I’m not exactly young according to the story’s parameters. Turning 29 later this month, I might as well be a senior citizen. Second, I’m not exactly unemployed. I work part-time and do a tiny bit of freelancing for the Trib. Nevertheless, I completely relate to this sentiment from the young woman the Vancouver Sun quoted:
“I don’t think people care about young people. Young people are really undervalued,” Ms. Hoang said.
Except for me (and many others) you can replace “young people” with “journalists” or “writers.”
