Kollibri Terre Sonnenblume — Dear Fellow Gen Xers: Let’s Step Aside for the Millennials

Here’s some details about the Millennials (sources listed at end of article):
  • 43% non-white
  • Best educated generation in US history
  • Only 1/4 are married; 44% say that marriage is becoming obsolete
  • More tolerant of races and groups than older generations (47% vs. 19%)
  • Less religious
  • Views of media growing more negative
  • 61% “worried about the state of the world and feel personally responsible to make a difference”
  • 92% “believe that business success should be measured by more than just profit”
  • 83% “agreed with the statement, ‘there is too much power concentrated in the hands of a few big companies,’” which is higher than all other generations
  • 64% “would rather make $40,000 a year at a job they love than $100,000 a year at a job they think is boring”
  • 88% “prefer a collaborative work culture rather than a competitive one”
These are helpful characteristics and admirable traits for the challenges that face us. By 2020, Millennials will make up 40% of the electorate so we could be in for a big shake-up…
