Due to the increasing housing shortage, many young adults in the EU live with their parents.  Despite good jobs, the salary is often not enough to finance the rising rents.

More and more young adults in the EU are forced to live with their parents due to tense housing situations. Despite qualified jobs and good incomes, it has become almost impossible for many to find affordable housing, according to the Guardian.

In Ireland, where rents have doubled since 2013, it is now the norm for young people into their mid-20s to live with their parents. Over the last five years, the proportion of employed 25- to 34-year-olds who live with their parents has increased from 27 to 40 percent.

“Some people say, ‘I’m finished, I’m going to have to live with my parents forever,'” the Guardian quotes a young Irish man named Connor, who is pursuing a career in the tech industry, as saying. Despite his relatively high salary, he has not yet managed to find his own apartment.

This trend can also be observed in Spain, Portugal and Croatia. In Spain, the proportion of young workers living with their parents has increased from 35 percent to 42 percent. In Portugal the proportion even rose from 41 to 52 percent.

Even well-paid and qualified jobs no longer guarantee the financial independence that comes with moving out of your parents’ house.
