Angry young men from ‘squeezed middle’ lack optimism
5 February 2013
A study of youth attitudes has raised concerns about young men in the “squeezed middle” who are deeply pessimistic about their future chances. Among these young men – from families of skilled or semi-skilled workers – more than two-thirds never expect to own their own home. This identification of a distinctive group of aggrieved young men emerged from the Youth Matters survey, carried out for the O2 telecommunications company.
