Ashley Hammond is in her mid-20s. She graduated from Boise State University two years ago. Unlike a lot of people her age, she doesn't have student loan debt. Hammond is a social worker for the state, a job she considers herself “very fortunate” to have. She has a toddler with her partner of eight years, Zac Nickel. They're expecting a baby in November. They are buying a house together and would be married, if not for a financial puzzle that didn't exist when previous generations were her age. Angie Baker, a Boise human resources professional who also works for the state, is in a similar position when it comes to financial stress. She's 32 and earned a biology degree from the College of Idaho. She grew up with a stay-at-home mom, and she remembers “being comfortable,” even though her family didn't have a lot of money. She wasn't prepared for what happened when she gave birth to her son, Cole/Audrey Dutton, Idaho Statesman. More here.
