The American dream is one of a life of great riches and happiness.
However, if you are a millennial, you are not living that dream anymore.
You are not making it to the top, you’re not finding your dream job, and you’re more likely to be unemployed and looking for other ways to make ends meet.
That is the case for the average person living paycheck to paycheck, and in fact, the most people are in this position, according to the latest data from Experian.
The study shows that the average American household is on track to spend $1,600 more on food in 2021 than they did in 2020, with the average cost of a gallon of gas in 2020 at $1.27.
It also showed that the typical millennial is making about $20,000 less per year than their parents did in the same time frame.
While there is some good news for those who have already made their dream jobs and want to keep working, many of these people would be out of work for a long time if they weren’t in the top 20 percent of earners.

The median wage for a full-time employee in 2021 is $51,000, a 13.7 percent increase over the year before, according the report.
That same wage for the full-timers in 2020 was $48,000.
In 2020, there were nearly 5.3 million Americans in the middle class, Experian said.
The median income for a middle-income person in 2021 was $51-63,000; in 2020 it was $53,000 and in 2021 it was more than three times that amount.
The survey of 2,400 respondents was conducted in May by Experians research firm, PwC.
