Chirp - Young Adults Find Economy Tough

A new Pew Research Center survey finds that young adults (ages 18 to 34) say the slow economy has affected decisions about career, marriage, parenthood and schooling.  For example, nearly half (49%) have taken a job in the past few years that they didn’t really want just to pay the bills; 24% moved back in with their parents; 22% postponed having children; and 20% postponed getting married.  At the same time, they maintain long-term optimism.
