For those who've been scratching their heads wondering why so many millennial offspring have continued to inhabit their parents' homes, VICE magazine's editorial intern Ebony-Renee Baker has answers. It interviewed several young people who are indeed doing that, in their bedrooms (we're not quite certain of the signficance of that particular fact).
According to a recent Pew study, more American millennials are living at home with their parents than with a spouse for the first time in 130 years.
Another recent report says that these millennials who stay at home are making less money and commuting more than young adults who have moved out, and are unemployed or underemployed. They are also more likely to be men, immigrants, or children of immigrants.
Whatever the reason, it's not as taboo as it used to be to stay home in your 20s, and no one is really making fun of anyone for doing it (well, except this guy, who deserves it)—including our parents.
So we decided to see how these cozy-nested millennials are living. We went into their bedrooms and asked how they feel about still living under mom and dad's roof.
