An economist has burst the myth of the & # 39; squashed evasion & # 39; & # 39; with a graph that reveals that the growth of millennial income is lower than ever, despite the increase in living costs.
Jason Murphy said that since 2009 those between 15 and 24 years old have experienced only an increase in income, while Australians between 25 and 34 years experienced a decline.
In comparison, middle-aged and elderly Australians enjoyed steady income growth during the same period.

The graph also compares income amounts since 1988 with income growth between 2003 and 2010, the highest for all groups.
The graph refutes the widespread belief that millennials do not prioritize savings, but instead spend money on luxury brunch options, such as avocado toast on toast.
Bernard Salt controversially put the debate on avocado in the spotlight in a column of the Weekend Australian in 2016 and his argument has continued to revolve for two years.
Salt claimed that he would often see young people spend $ 22 on a broken avocado with shredded feta cheese.

"Should not you economize eating at home? How often are you eating out?" The columnist wrote.
Twenty-two dollars several times per week could go to a deposit in a house.
Young Australians are also burdened by the high costs of living, especially in the main cities of Sydney and Melbourne.
Housing prices in Sydney have been unattainable for young people who wish to enter the property with the average house price in coastal cities that peaked at $ 1.17 million in June 2017.
It is expected that housing prices in Sydney and Melbourne will decline after all historical highs since 2015.
