I’ve not paid much attention to the youth protests in France regarding a new law that will make it easier to hire and fire young workers under the age of 26. A question about whether this is an issue that has broader (beyond the borders of France) implication got my attention.

I’m wondering what young workers in the United States would do if a law was proposed that would discriminate against them. Or what would happen if they realized the growing national debt might have a very negative effect on them. Our young adults won’t be protesting in the street in numbers like in France as long as the impact is uncertain, abstract, and off in the future.
