And so, after a successful pilot run, the tax agency has announced that it's making its new free direct file program permanent. The Direct File program first launched in twelve states for the 2023 filing season following a successful pilot. "Since the direct file pilot was completed in April, we have heard directly from hundreds of organizations across the country, more than a hundred members of Congress, from individual direct file users, and those that are interested in using direct file," Werfel said. The new Direct File program has encountered some pushback from paid tax services. Did you use Direct File and save time or money?

Using data from the Fed's Survey of Consumer Finances, the analysis finds that over a million Americans ages 55 to 64 are holding student loans, or have spouses with loans. There are a range of reasons why older borrowers might be struggling to pay off their student loans. Millennials are most likely to hold student debt with an average balance of about $35,000, and while fewer Gen Xers have student debt, their average balance is higher at about $48,000, according to TransUnion. Provisions are being rolled out by President Joe Biden's Education Department that could ease the burden of student debt on older borrowers.

That's helping establish a new millennial milestone for some: Ditching roommates, moving out from the family home, and landing on living alone. Business Insider's analysis of American Community Survey microdata from IPUMS found that 10.5% of millennials lived alone in 2022. Per BI's analysis of American Community Survey data via IPUMS, 16% of millennials lived with at least one parent as of 2022. (The data doesn't specify if that means they're living with their parents or if their parents are living with them.)

Over a year after Ticketmaster crashed, preventing rabid Taylor Swift fans from purchasing tickets to her concert tour, the DOJ has announced an antitrust lawsuit against Ticketmaster's parent company, Live Nation Entertainment. Advertisement"This has given Live Nation and Ticketmaster the opportunity to freeze innovation and bend the industry to their own benefit. The lawsuit comes after Ticketmaster fumbled a pre-sale event in late 2022 for Taylor Swift's Eras Tour as fans competed with bots for a limited number of tickets. AdvertisementIn response to the antitrust suit, Live Nation said that "calling Ticketmaster a monopoly may be a PR win for the DOJ in the short term, but it will lose in court."

The middle class is more of a club than an income bracketThe ranks of middle-income earners have been shrinking, according to the Pew Research Center. A solid chunk of millionaires consider themselves middle class, despite accounting for just over 12% of American families. And there's good reasons," Lawrence R. Samuel, the author of the book "The American Middle Class: A Cultural History," told Business Insider. "Being middle class is almost like classless. Clinging to at least the mirage of the middle class might be important to upholding more core American ideals.

Younger workers are foregoing higher education as costs continue to remain top of mind — and the value of a college education isn't what it used to be. On Wednesday, Deloitte released a survey on Gen Z and millennial attitudes toward the world and their financial conditions. That comes as over half of Gen Z and millennials are living paycheck to paycheck, per the report — a continued trend among younger workers. For both Gen Z and millennials, the cost of living is their top concern, with Gen Z also concerned about potential unemployment. Still, younger adults' perceptions toward higher education seem to skew away from overall attitudes toward a postsecondary degree or credential.

Now, she told me, blue-collar work is an oasis in the fake-email-job desert, with a newfound social cachet. In a survey conducted in late 2021, 67% of blue-collar workers said they believed the pandemic changed how people viewed their jobs, and 75% of white-collar workers agreed. AdvertisementNow, the economy is adding blue-collar jobs at a rapid clip. There is a tendency — particularly among white-collar workers — to look at blue-collar work through rose-colored glasses, to romanticize the hard work and skills it requires. The labor market hasn't completely reversed course; blue-collar jobs may be booming, but a bachelor's degree is still often a prerequisite for roles with high pay and numerous benefits.

A new Zillow and StreetEasy analysis finds that rental price growth is far outpacing wage growth in most big cities — and New Yorkers are particularly screwed. In New York City, rents increased seven times as fast as wages from 2022 to 2023. Similarly, renters in Boston, Cincinnati, and Buffalo are seeing their wage growth dwarfed by their rent increases. But it's not all bad news for prospective and current tenants: There are still a handful of cities where wage growth has outpaced rent increases. While wages rose by 5.5% between 2022 and 2023, rents increased by just 0.8%, the Zillow/StreetEasy report found.

"So looking at even a $150,000 price tag for a house, you're just like, when is that ever going to happen?" In the fourth quarter of 2019, millennials held $3.5 trillion in real estate wealth; as of the fourth quarter of 2023, that's more than doubled. Average millennial wealth doubled between 2019 and 2023, according to an analysis from the Center for American Progress. For example, Gen Xers' real wealth grew by only 4% in the four years following 2007's Great Recession. Baby boomers' real wealth grew by 46% in the four years after the 1990 recession.

That's because, taken together, the two primary Social Security funds are set to only be able to pay out full benefits through 2035; the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund, one of the main funds comprising Social Security, will start getting depleted in 2033. AdvertisementIn other words, the moment that today's older Gen Xers are ready to retire, their Social Security benefits could start to shrink. Gen Xers — born from 1965 to 1980 — have been deemed the country's "neglected middle child" by the Pew Research Center. And among the different generations, Gen Xers were the most likely to report that they were feeling financially insecure. That could set the stage for the new crop of Gen X retirees to arrive in an already-precarious retirement economy.

Many Americans don't know, and it's getting even harder to calculate — especially as Social Security is poised to start reducing benefits in just about a decade. Related stories"That number is all over the place," Copeland said, referring to how much people are going to need in retirement savings. "It will be devastating if people who already are facing very dire retirement prospects get less Social Security than they're planning on. Estimating how much you will need in retirement may be helpful, even long before retirement.

Full Social Security benefits are expected to run out in 2035, per the program's trustees. AdvertisementAs more Americans fear being unprepared for retirement — and rely solely on Social Security — those full benefits might not be long-lived. Meanwhile, among the income that typical retirees do receive, just under 80% see income from Social Security. The latest estimates on Social Security also come as the US economy braces for a "peak boomer" wave of new retirees. That's the biggest group of boomers retiring yet, and, per that analysis, many will end up having to rely on Social Security benefits to stay afloat.

Job growth in April was concentrated in traditionally low-paying sectors like healthcare and retail. Wage growth, though slower, still outpaces inflation, which is still a boon for workers. That's because the industries that led job growth in April are traditionally low-paying. Indeed, job growth is concentrated in industries that are historically low-paying — and continue to pay less than the average across private industries. As Pollak notes, "wage growth has come down sharply, but it's mostly come down in industries where it was very rapid before."

US job creation is shifting from rich coastal cities to the Sunbelt and Midwest. The shift is in large part a result of skyrocketing housing costs in coastal cities. This is in part because these cities have a lower cost of living — driven by lower housing costs — as big coastal cities have become increasingly unaffordable. At the same time, major coastal cities like New York City, Los Angeles, and Seattle saw their hiring shares decline. The richest coastal cities are also suffering from negative perceptions about safety and public order, and those reputations likely also play a role in people leaving.

A growing group of America's young people are not in school, not working, or not looking for work. They're called "disconnected youth" or "opportunity youth," and their ranks have been growing for nearly three decades. Experts say it's not just work and school; this group is often also disconnected from a sense of purpose. Palmer added that those with limited access to transportation, people with disabilities, and young parents were also more susceptible. Disconnected young people don't have that luxury."

Read previewThe Biden administration this week pushed out a slate of rules it says are meant to boost competitiveness and put more money into workers' pockets. There are already challenges to at least one of the rules — but together they could land overtime pay for millions more workers, ban noncompetes that prevent workers from moving into jobs in similar industries, and help people get automatic refunds for delayed or canceled flights. More workers eligible for overtime payUnder the Department of Labor's new rule, many workers who make under $43,888 will be eligible for overtime pay effective July 1. A ban on noncompetes that keep workers from taking new jobsPerhaps the most sweeping action for workers came from the Federal Trade Commission, which finalized a rule to ban noncompetes in most cases.
