Summary: Poor Scott Nicholson lives with his parents in a Boston suburb as he turns down $40,000 jobs. His father and grandfather worked their way up corporate ladders to achieve their success. They don’t understand how Scott can’t be catapulted to the top without ever lifting a finger. “So he struggles to get a foothold in the civilian work force. His brother in Boston lost his roommate, and early last month Scott moved into the empty bedroom, with his parents paying Scott’s share of the $2,000-a-month rent until the lease expires on Aug. 31.”
“I can find work but it doesn’t pay $75,000 like my brother’s job so I’ll turn it down and complain that the recession is holding me down.” How did he get featured in a New York Times piece?
