A Young Australian’s Voice by Imogen Wait


A young Australian’s voice is my perspective as a university student
who is going to graduate with a Media and Communications degree
into the current recession. This satirical piece is a rebuttal to Ita
Buttrose’s comments on the millennial workforce needing ‘hugging’.
It explains and informs the unique economic challenges faced by
young people in the workforce and how the traditional media have
continuously excluded Australian youth from representation and
taking part in the conversation.
