Contrary to the idea that the economy will simply bounce back over time, historical data projections reveal that when people start adulthood in deep unemployment, the slump tends to last well beyond their youth. Of course, resilient young workers will adapt their lifestyles to such destabilization, but overall economic drag often leads to depressed future wages and hampers national economic productivity.

  • Meet the cops who save women from forced marriage | Al Jazeera America – “As soon as she landed, her mom took her passport and documentation and said, ‘Forget everything you have ever known about America, because you are never going back,’” said Balson, who would not reveal the woman’s country of origin or name to protect her identity.
