One of the things that I find strangest about American politics is that older people are generally far more worried about the debt situation than young people (even though it’s the older generations that is responsible). At some point we won’t be able to kick the can any farther down the road, and I fear that time will come just as our generation is hitting its prime. It’s an extremely serious issue, but it’s one that is hard to take seriously when you’re young. The Can Kicks Back is an organization that is trying to change that. Though they haven’t launched yet (their website says Fall 2012), the “Millennial-driven campaign to solve America’s fiscal crisis” will be based in Washington, DC. I would have thought that The Can Kicks Back would already be more active considering that the election is barely 2 months away.

You’re the Can

The Can Kicks Back believes that “although young people have the most to lose by continuing on our current path, no one has taken the time to connect the issue to our lives or given us a way to get involved.” I agree completely. The Can Kicks Back is aiming to change this, though I think it’s going to be a long, tough road. When so many young people are struggling to find jobs and pay offer their student loan debt, why would they worry about macro debt problems that are 20 or 30 years down the road? They just want to get a job and get started with life after college. The more I think about fiscal reform, the more I realize that it’s an insanely complex issue. How do we reduce our country’s debt without limiting short-term economic growth and stunting the careers of those who are just starting out? I don’t have the answers, but if you want The Can Kicks Back’s take you should look through their Twitter and Facebook profiles. If you’re like their approach, then head over to Idealist for learn about career opportunities. Since The Can Kicks Back is just getting started, they don’t have any jobs posted, but they do have full-time internships in Outreach, Field/Campaign, and Communications. They’re offering monthly stipends, though I’m not sure how substantial they are. Hopefully some of these positions will turn into full-time jobs as The Can Kicks Back launches and starts to grow.
