These years ago many families saw how the jobs that assured a household sustenance were in danger and not only that, but also those who kept their jobs saw how salaries became more precarious. Not even a higher level of education ensured a employment stability.

The results were clear, a population of between 12 and 24 years of lower-middle income areas imagined their future better than the rest.
