You millennials called us stupid for working crazy hours and taking staycations. How's that "lifestyle" of yours working out?


As fun as it is to see boomers attack the generation they raised and see millennials respond in kind...the article seems to key this not off of lower wages due to hours worked nor lavish lifestyle spending but the dramatic increase in the cost of higher education. I wonder who was the driving force for millennials in pursuit of college degrees no matter the debt required.

The old SNL sketch with Steve Martin and his book Don't Spend Money You Don't Have would serve boomers, Xers, and millennials alike.

@SecondJon Watch who you call a boomer. As much as I hate being categorized by age group (an unfortunate side effect of 20th century mass warfare), I'm a slacker from the Gen-X disaster.


@ReadyKilowatt LOL. Nothing here is personal... Mostly when I hear peeps insulting millennials lack of values it's coming from the generation that was tasked to pass on values, so I find it self destructive when followed through.

Also.... Looking at the charts, gen X didn't seem to be much different than millennials. I don't fit with the charts.... But that means that to average out there's people faring far far worse than the charts represent.
