Good article which describes the hardship of the younger generation. Add to that the extreme price increases in real estate making it impossible for them to even get mortgages, and the exploitation of landlords renting them over-priced apartments. The over-60-somethings all benefited from un-indexed mortgages back in the early 1980's and that's how they got to purchase cottages and villas where they are now.

It's just exacerbating the extreme inequalities prevalent in society today.
