An Australian newspaper, The Independent, rpublished an article about Generation X: In the war between millennials and baby boomers we have forgotten about the work-hard, play-hard Generation X.
It has captured the attention of a lot of people, so I wanted to pass it along. Here is an excerpt:
The boomers don’t like the millennials because they think the younger generation are feckless, whiny snowflakes who are scared of hard graft and obsessed by status, more interested in posting a selfie to social media than doing anything useful.
“The millennials, on the other hand, see the moomers as a rapacious generation that’s pretty much ruined everything for them. They’re living too long, taxpayers’ money is gushing into looking after them. They’ve kept house prices high, meaning young people can’t afford to buy. Workplace pensions are rapidly becoming a thing of the past. Boomers are, by and large, Brexiteers and Trumpers.
“And who are we, if we’re not boomers or millennials? Why, we’re Generation X of course. And when the slapping and fighting is all done and dusted, we’re going to save the world…”
What do you think of the article? Do you think Gen X is the work hard, play hard generation?
