NEW YORK—Following a year of fruitless efforts to find a job, unemployed 26-year-old Scott Wesley, who reportedly lives off a $2 million trust fund established by his parents, confirmed Thursday he “still has enough in savings” to make ends meet for the time being. “The job market’s tough right now, but thankfully I have some money put away in my savings account,” said Wesley, apparently referring to the professionally managed investment fund to which his parents have been the sole contributors since his birth. “Obviously, living off your savings isn’t ideal, but I’m not too worried. I’ve been through rough stretches before, and somehow in the end I’m always able to find enough to cover all my expenses.” At press time, sources confirmed the man’s parents had just deposited $30,000 into his checking account.
