Many receive college degrees and are not able to find gainful employment in the economy. Put the additional problem of student debt on top of this, and we have a huge population of young people who are willing and able to work but are not able to find the right opportunities in the job market. 2. Lack of job advancement. The recovery after the Great Recession of 2009 has often been called a jobless recovery. Because of this, those that already had jobs have experienced stagnant wages. With everyone barely hanging on to the jobs that they have, and so many qualified people looking for jobs, many who have experienced being stuck in their current position with no raise, no opportunity for advancement, and scared to death of leaving their jobs. 3. Stagnant wages. As many know, facts show that median wage levels have not gone up in almost 3 decades.
