poverty gap is your answer..
more teenagers are leaving school with a negative outlook and no faith in society..
they've just spent the last three years seeing only negative comments in the media about the adult economy they are about to step into and they are turning on, tuning in and dropping out wholesale..
why throw themselves into a life as a struggling wage slave, doomed to walk the tightrope of poverty for eternity.. when they can just nick expensive stuff from the mindless oozing slugs that have sacrificed themselves to capitalism before them..
it's like the late 80s in many ways.. only more beige because everyone is listless and so blindly obedient of their banking overseers.. so there are no yuppies.. and no strikes..
just apathy and austerity and pent up frustration.. and there will always be a percentage of school leavers who just won't buy it..
so the ranks of the criminal underclass are swelled and the yuppies are yuppies of crime.. getting rich on the easy pickings as the black economy booms..

Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of **** fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the **** you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing **** junk food into your mouth. Choose a really **** expensive hobby like cycling, Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, **** up brats you spawned to replace yourself.
