In a piece bearing the foreboding title “Long Island is dying” that ran in the Young Island blog on Feb. 4, Rich Murdocco throws an ill-timed and fairly sloppy haymaker at common sense.
In partnership with the National Center for Suburban Studies® at Hofstra University, the Suburban Millennial Institute is convening leaders in government, business, and advocacy on Friday, March 13th to discuss how Long Island can retain its Millennial population.
Hofstra University will host a Suburban Millennial Jobs Conference this spring.
Thirty percent of young adults plan to leave Long Island primarily because of a lack of well-paying jobs, according to a new Suburban Millennial Institute study.
