My little corner of the Internet scored a mention on the popular job site Monster.com. Many thanks to the journalist! Here’s my post on the Facebook page about it.
Here is the excerpt that includes a link to a post I wrote about latchkey kids.
Can’t Gen X Pick Up the Slack?
Generation X spans those born between 1965 to 1980 and includes 65 million people. According to Pew Research, Gen X contributes nearly 53 million workers to the U.S. economy. That leaves a gap of 10 million workers to fill the Baby Boomer gap.
Unfortunately, not all Gen Xers will continue to work full time. Many in the “latchkey generation” are at a life stage with children and some must care for aging parents, too. For these workers, workplace flexibility and work/life balance are critical components of the decision to stay in, or step away from, the workforce.Monster.com
