Young Aussie explains why he never wants a full-time job – and plans to live at mummy’s house until he is 50
A student who previously revealed he would live with his parents until he was 50 has now decided that working full-time does not match his beliefs.
Anthony Voulgaris, a university student from Melbourne, shared his revelation about working full-time via social media on Friday.
“I would like to come here and formally announce that I think full-time work is not for me, yes, personally not for me,” he said.
“I’d like to sit here and give reasons, but there aren’t many.
“I just personally don’t think it aligns with my beliefs, you know my belief system.
“You can’t force someone to believe what you believe, so yeah.”

Millennials quickly sympathized with Mr. Voulgaris, with many agreeing that they were not “made” for full-time work.
“Personally, I’m on your level, I think I was born to be a stay at home mom/housewife, so yeah, no, no job for me,” one person commented.
‘I do three days and that is more than enough for me. I’m never going to work full time again!’ said another.
‘I just went from 8am to 6am and what a difference! It feels like I have so much extra free time in the day to accomplish things!’ a second wrote.
However, others said they had no choice but to work full-time.
“I feel the same way, but unfortunately the need to eat, pay bills, have a roof over my head and take care of my kids means I have to work full time for me lol,” one person said.
‘I say this to my partner every day! Then remember we have a mortgage,” someone said.
A third said: ‘Well, it’s not for me either and yet I work here from 9 to 5.’
It comes after baby boomers claimed that the younger generations are just ‘weak babies’, who have no idea of the real world and often produce ‘substandard’ work.
“Young people are leaving the workplace because they would rather sit at home with Centrelink payments than actually go to work,” Dianne, 66, noted as a furious debate about millennials’ work ethics broke out online.
Another said: “So these whiny weak babies who quit their jobs are going back to live with mommy and daddy? How do they support themselves?’
A third wrote: ‘One day this generation will be in charge. We are all doomed.’
Others noted that the complaints from the “me, myself and me” generations are “a bit rich” and come from a group of people who go out of their way to be offended and then “cry themselves on social media” about it to post.
“Millennials are selfish, self-centered, and don’t understand teamwork or responsibility to coworkers or the company,” one person said. “The problem is that they are also so arrogant and entitled that they don’t want to recognize or admit these qualities.”
Another wrote: ‘Most young people wouldn’t actually know what hard work/busy is.’
“We’ve raised a generation of selfish wimps,” Janet said.
Mr Voulgaris caused a stir earlier this year when he announced he planned to live with his parents until he was 50.
He wondered why a young person would choose to leave home.
“I’ll stay here as long as I can,” Mr. Voulgaris said.
‘I get free food, I have my laundry done for me – that’s lucky, a lot of people don’t get that – I’m never going to move again.
‘If I can stay here until I’m 50, I will. I slave over these people and I will continue to do so with pleasure.”
His comments came as young people aged 18 to 30 opted to stay or return to their family homes amid Australia’s rental and property crisis.
Record low vacancy rates, the rising cost of living and repeated interest rate hikes have created a perfect storm for young Aussies trying to get on the property ladder.
