Thomas Massie, Justin Amash to Participate in War On Youth Town Hall

YAL War on Youth Townhall

The current prevailing political trends have been failing the predictions of their original proponents.

Higher minimum wages and the implementation of health care mandates that force companies to spend more to maintain employees on the payroll are just a few of the many policies that have been linked to the many difficulties that teens and young adults have been facing in the past decade.

The current job market for teens is the toughest on record and the type of solutions that are now being supported by the Obama administration do nothing to solve the problem but aggravate it. Once higher minimum wages kick in, the current administration’s solution will prove to be yet another impediment to the entry of inexperienced or young individuals with little or no experience in the workforce.

Because these policies lead to constant harassment that young Americans are forced to struggle with daily, Congressmen Justin Amash (R-MI) and Thomas Massie (R-KY) will be participating in a “War on Youth” town hall, which will take place in Arizona.

The Glendale Community College chapter of Young Americans for Liberty will host the event. If you can’t make it, YAL will be broadcasting the event live online on April 3, at 7 p.m. EDT or 4 p.m. PDT.

Viewers can send in their questions to both congressmen by using the hashtag #WarOnYouth.

Amash, who’s one of the few conservative members of Congress to have actively fought against the NSA’s surveillance programs and Massie, a Republican congressman who has introduced legislation linked to the legalization of industrial hemp, have been close to the issues that have been stirring young Americans and pushing them to stay away from establishment politicians.

Both congressmen know how to reach the youth precisely because of their commitment to principles that have been long forgotten among most career politicians. Their consistent criticism regarding the Federal Reserve’s policies, the Internet sales tax, the NDAA and the push for more military intervention abroad have put them under the spotlight and now they are ready to discuss more of the issues that trouble young generations of Americans even more openly.
