A large contributor to this has been the absolute free-fall in the middle-class birthrate; young people who can’t find decent work aren’t marrying/having children (for that and legal/cultural reasons). This generation of young people will probably never be in the market for a home (after watching what happened to their predecessors, who had the employment thing pulled out from under their feet), so the amnesty will have to be used to get someone in the existing and future homes - not just to buy homes, but to support the “public education industrial complex” and other businesses.
The world is so vastly different now. I was born six days before the D-day invasion of Normandy and by the time I was 23, TWENTY THREE DADGUMMED YEARS OLD FOR CRYIN’ OUT LOUD, I was being asked to my face what was wrong with me! Why was I asked such a rude question? Because I did not already have a wife and children, that’s why! Some people literally acted as though I was breaking some kind of law because I was still single at such an advanced age. Some who were younger than I was even commented that they hoped they wouldn’t be single when they reached twenty three. It seems so unreal looking back but I know damned well it happened, I didn’t imagine it.
