Yeah, young folks are more likely to have lower cost-of-living, because they live with family and don't need to pay rent (yet).
Anybody who isn't rich enough to own property without a mortgage needs to pay significant monetary value for rent in most countries, and is quite likely to avoid any job that would have them living paycheck-to-paycheck just so they can barely afford to go to work every day, like a fucking slave.
Unless you can somehow get away with hiring homeless people living in their car (that inevitably breaks down in your driveway or parking lot,) you're screwed if you need minimum wage employees.
Young folks are getting wiser too, by the way.
They are far less likely to want to work for wages that will let them afford a "starter home" by the time they're 70 years old… or "Never" if they ever get somebody pregnant.
