They have contingency plans

I don’t think many individuals between the ages of 25 and 38 really had the time to create contingency plans. All we could do was try to get whatever jobs we could for a while to barely pay our rent until we finally learned what we really wanted to do for a living and barely started making a decent income with that by, say, our early to mid thirties. We didn’t have the down time to create contingency plans the way baby boomers did. Our parents probably have ways to financially survive, even if things get really tough for a while. They prepared for this moment.
