Gen Xers entered the work force in the mid 80s when the economy was absolute crap. Interest rates were 20% and part time jobs for min wage were awful hard to come by.

I would know. Building on a shitty start with high tax rates, free trade exporting manufacturing jobs and debt loads made it hard to get ahead while being expected to shoulder the retirement expectations of the Boomers and raise the millennials. That's why.
