Over the weekend, "social demographer" Bernard Salt opened a new chapter in the never ending war between baby boomers and the ~youth of today~.
Most of it was pretty standard ranting (milk crate furniture, hipster cafes, etc) but then he came for young people's brunch.
I have seen young people order smashed avocado with crumbled feta on five-grain toasted bread at $22 a pop and more. I can afford to eat this for lunch because I am middle-aged and have raised my family. But how can young people afford to eat like this? Shouldn't they be economising by eating at home? How often are they eating out? Twenty-two dollars several times a week could go towards a deposit on a house.
