Bloomberg: Millennials, Gen Z pessimistic about life, rightly blame everything that has gone wrong on the boomers
[link to www.bloomberg.com (secure)]

Uneasiness and pessimism abound among the majority of the world's population.

Deloitte has released its Global Millennial Survey of 13,416 Millennials (born between 1983 and 1994) spread across 42 countries and 3,009 Gen Z respondents (born between 1995 and 2002) from 10 countries. The firm has conducted the survey for the past eight years.

The percentage of respondents who think that businesses are making a positive impact dropped six points from 61% in 2018 to 55%.


``I would say that for businesses, the most important takeaway is the continuously diminishing trust of Millennials and Gen Zs, " says Deloitte Global Chief Talent Officer Michele Parmelee.

While the two generations have strikingly similar views of the world, Parmelee said survey data shows that their points of view differ in a few significant areas, such as life priorities and their perception of society and work.

Generally, only about half of both groups aspire to purchase a home, and even fewer desire to start a family. ``Instead, travel and seeing the world was at the top of the list (57%) of aspirations,'' the report said.

Only 52% of the Millennials surveyed responded that earning a high salary was a top priority while 56% of their Gen Z peers did so. And 39% of the Millennials saw starting a family as very important, while 45% of the younger cohort agreed.

Because some among the Gen Z age group are still studying, they are generally more likely to expect educators to provide them with the skills they'll need in the labor market. Millennials, on the other hand, expect businesses to give them access to more skills.

So your sitting around on a Monday and you say, you know what? I think I’ll depress the hell out of glpers by quoting Mr. BLoomberg. I guess you like Mr. Bloomberg, you trust him and his people, do ya?
While you were at it you must of decided to get some intergenerational hate goin cause after all that does seem popular with you types!
Millennials, Gen Z, Boomers, all hating on eachother, this makes you happy I guess?

I have a better plan. How about all the generations get together and work to improve things? How about we spread love not hate? Peace would be nice, maybe we could ban together, grandma’s, grandpa’s their children, and grandchildren brainstorming to make everyone’s life better?

Now wouldn’t that be a better way to spend a Monday night?
I think so, I really do.

Shouldn't they be blaming the millenials too. After all, they've had twenty years to do something about it and look at the mess we're in.
