This week, President Trump needs to deal with bigger issues than backing out of the Paris Climate Agreement. In early June, over 3.5 million Americans became unemployed. Sources say the government and the media are keeping this issue quiet because it affects the "millennials". The same event occurred last year yet it received no coverage. Presidents after presidents have ignored this issue irresponsibly for far too long. The people's voices need to be heard.

We approached a psychologist from University of Louisville, Dylan, regarding the mindset of the millennials and what should be done. "Well the world sees them as lazy and selfish. I say enjoy it till it ends!" As the number of unemployed goes up, jobs become harder to find. Our advice to all the 18 years old looking for work; who cares. Your family and everyone else already thinks you are lazy; take advantage of it and enjoy the ride. Let someone else worry about it.
