    An analyst, who was once dubbed the 'Oracle of Wall Street', has warned how not owning homes hurts the 'avocado toast generation.' Meredith Whitney, who is known for successfully forecasting the 2008 financial crisis, said that younger Millennials and Gen Z have missed out on $21 trillion in equity which older generations have built in home ownership. We are seeing record low homeownership levels for those under 38,' she told 'Homeownership has been a forced savings vehicle in the US, but particularly in the last 12 or 15 years, because interest rates have effectively been at zero. We have...

    Young adults are having a hard time embracing the “adult.” A new survey revealed that Gen Z and millennial adults are facing more difficulties than their parents did when it comes to achieving milestones in the workforce. Of the 1,039 young adults surveyed, aged between 18 and 34, 55% said it’s “much harder” to buy a home, 44% said it’s harder to find a job, and 55% said it’s harder to get promoted, according to a Youth & Money in the USA poll by CNBC and Generation Lab.

    What is Gen Z? Officially, Generation Z was born between the mid 1990s and the early 2010s, meaning their ages range from about 11 to 27. Their age is only a small part of what defines their generation, instead it is the events they’ve lived through that have shaped their worldview. “they've grown up in a much more fragmented, less cohesive society in America,” says Morley Winograd, a senior fellow at the USC Annenberg School of Communication, Leadership and Policy and author of three books on millennials. Since they’ve come to understand the world, Gen Z has felt the effects...
  • Almost half of millennials think misgendering someone should be a CRIMINAL offense, new survey finds

    Almost half of millennials believe using the incorrect pronouns for a transgender person should be considered a criminal offense. A survey, conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies for Newsweek suggested that among those aged between 25-34, 44 percent were in favor of the idea while just 31 percent disagreed. The remaining 25 percent of those responding to the survey either expressed no clear opinion or simply stated that they didn't know. Similar sentiments were found among those aged 35-44. In that group, 38 percent appeared to be in favor of criminalizing misgendering someone while 35 percent were against. About one...

    As many as two in five adults in the U.S. have a side hustle, according to a recent Bankrate survey of 2,500-plus adults, backing up LendingTree data from earlier this year that found side gigs are up by 13% over the past two years and recent Deloitte data that found more millennials and Gen Zers are adding on part-time jobs. Younger workers are more likely to need an extra job: 53% of Gen Zers and half of millennials have one, Bankrate finds, compared to only 40% of Gen Xers and 24% of baby boomers. It's a reflection of the state...

    As the Democratic Party becomes more progressive, radical, and insistent on its push for a liberal agenda, young Americans are stepping away and leaning toward the Right. According to data from Nate Cohn with the New York Times, millennials are shifting towards the Republican Party. Liberalism is not what it used to be before the 2000s. Being liberal in today's society does not mean walking around barefoot, selling flowers along the highway, and burning your bra. Instead, it means supporting LGBTQ propaganda and being brainwashed by an 80-year-old president who doesn't remember where he is half the time. The data...

    As a millennial, In my opinion there are 2 reasons for the Republican's issue in gaining the genZ and millennial support 1. We want more social freedoms. We believe the government has no right to dictate our lives. My body my choice, both ways. Do drugs, not my right to tell you no. You are gay? Cool, doesn't matter. Marriage is a religious institution not a government responsibility. Tax implications are another story and if two people are “married” the federal government should not be regulating morality. This is where Republicans mess up. Stop focusing on these petty things and...

    Voters between the ages of 18 and 29 cast their ballots in favor of Democrats 63 percent of the time in the 2022 elections, exit polling data found. Data from NBC exit polls found that the demographic, comprised of Generation Z and the Millennials, voted 63 percent for Democrats and just 35 percent for the Republicans. The age demographic accounted for 12 percent of the electorate, in contrast to those aged 30 to 44, who made up 21 percent of the electorate and voted 51 percent for Democrats and 47 percent for Republicans, the exit poll data found.

    The data says millennials don't lack work ethic, but they'll never be able to afford what other generations take for granted. The popular millennial copypasta goes something like this: First experience with serious job hunting comes on the heels of the 2008 financial crisis Can't take advantage of correction in home prices because too young to have made any money, and wage growth stagnates anyway Homes rocket to new highs, no chance of catching up now by just working a 9-5 like your parents Late 20s/early 30s, try investing as it's your last chance to make it Get obliterated again...

    Young people are following the news, but aren’t too happy with what they’re seeing. Broadly speaking, that’s the conclusion of a study released Wednesday showing 79% of young Americans say they get news daily. The survey of young people ages 16 to 40 — the older of which are known as millennials and the younger Generation Z — was conducted by Media Insight Project, a collaboration between The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the American Press Institute. The report pokes holes in the idea that young people aren’t interested in news, a perception largely driven by statistics...

    80 percent of young adults still live within 100 miles of where they spent their teenage years. In my family, moving long distances is the norm. My mother was born and raised in Honolulu, where her grandmother had moved during the Great Depression from a sleepy upstate New York town on Lake Ontario. (You can read all about it in a novel my mom just published.) As adults, she and my dad left Hawaii for, of all places, New Hampshire, where my brother and I grew up. (“Why would you leave paradise for the frozen reaches of New Hampshire?” one...
  • Why millennials are dropping out

    07/15/2022 6:11:43 AM PDT · by FarCenter · 35 replies
    ... The answer to why so many are dropping out starts with economics. In the United States, social mobility has declined precipitously over the last four decades. A 2016 study found that since the early Eighties, the chance of middle-class earners moving up to the top rungs of the earnings ladder dropped by approximately 20%. According to projections from Deloitte, by 2030, millennials will be the largest adult generation by far but will own only 16% of the country’s wealth. Gen Xers will hold 31%, while Baby Boomers, who will be entering their eighties and nineties, will control 45%. Partly,...

    The mysterious thing is not that people are having fewer kids. It’s that they’re still having as many as they are. Numbers first. In late January the Office for National Statistics noted, in an “ooh that’s interesting” kind of a way, that in 2020, for the first time, half of women in England and Wales remained childless by their 30th birthday. In economy in which wages barely rise, a huge pile of debt if they’re a graduate and a housing market in which the only way to attain secure housing is to buy but the only way of buying is...
  • The Culture of the Single Millennial - Why are so many Millennials unmarried?

    06/09/2022 10:17:39 PM PDT · by Jonty30 · 227 replies ^ | Sep 5, 2021 | Staff Writer
    Why does the Millennial generation (people born between 1982-1996) have lower marriage and birth rates than previous generations? And when Millennials do get married, why is it at a later age than previous generations? Prominent periodicals like The Atlantic, Time, Washington Post and others have published articles trying to explain the phenomenon. Some claim that the cause is economic – we graduated from college into the 2008 Recession, we have a lot of student loan debt, and we receive stagnant wages as housing prices soar. Financial difficulty prevents young people from getting married. This is of course part of the...

    n 2016, Ryan Mundy was sitting in a room full of venture capitalists fielding start-up pitches when a thought occurred to him: None of the ideas he’d heard were geared toward solving the biggest issues in his own life. Mundy, a Super Bowl champion in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, was struggling to find a purpose after leaving the NFL in 2015. He suffered from anxiety, stemming from multiple relatives being sequentially diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease.

    The Mouse that Roared is a 1959 comedy film about a mouse-sized country (the Duchy of Grand Fenwick) that decides to solve its money problems by declaring war on America, then surrendering, then reaping the financial aid that America always bestows on its defeated enemies.“The Mouse that Whored” is a contemporary true story about a giant entertainment company (built around the character of an animated mouse) that has declared war on American parents. The monster-sized mouse corporation has no intention of surrendering. On the contrary it expects you to surrender your children to it. It has a good chance of...
  • "Put On Your Seatbelts": BlackRock CEO Warns Over 'Scarcity Inflation'

    Millennials (born between 1981 to 1996) have spent much of their lives living in an economic utopia where goods are cheap and plentiful. Unlike the generations before, these youngsters have yet to experience rapid inflation and shortages until now. On Tuesday, BlackRock Inc. President Rob Kapito told an audience in Austin, Texas, hosted by the Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association, that an entire younger generation is quickly finding out what it means to suffer from shortages, according to Bloomberg. “For the first time, this generation is going to go into a store and not be able to get...

    Forget the game and the all-Black (Eminem identifies as Black) halftime ‘show,’ I could write a book about the Super Bowl commercials. But what’s the point? They were certainly not targeting me. The Rams and the Bengals were both coached by Millennials who have taken over from the Old Guard. The game’s ad-spots were likewise created by Millennials for Millennials.Their market research now includes new age data mining that reveals that old Boomers like me are not likely to invest in cryto-currencies - even though I did rather like Crypto platform eToro’s CGI ad.
