    What do you associate with the term millennial?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    For the younger ones who are now in their 20s, it's educational debt and whining about pronouns. Actually, that's true of some of the older ones, too.

    Anecdotally, the older millennials tend to be more into more into new age atheism and socialism, the younger ones tend to be more into LGBT and feminism issues.

    Gen Z is comparatively conservative. At least in a vacuum for their age.
    Not sure why.

    What I recall about being a millennial was hearing about older people complain about us (and me receiving that label) when I had just barely started working in high school.

    At the time I was pretty apolitical and just played a lot of video games in solitude. I was a little confused why I was being hated so much when I didn't think I was much different from anyone else.

    A misunderstood generation. Boomers seem to think we're all Tweek from South Park.

    An extremely misunderstood generation. Lot of educational debt and even though some jobs might pay $11 an hour, that $11 an hour doesn't go very far. A lot of us were probably in middle school or junior high on 9/11 and just saw the world go downhill ever since. We were probably the last ones in school to use a real chalkboard (I remember when my Catholic school go their first white board - the other teachers were jealous) and we lived through technology changing from cassette tapes to CDs to MP3s; VHS tapes to DVDs to digital downloads and streaming.

    We were graduating high school, or going to soon, when the Recession of 2008 hit, so we tend of have a generally pessimistic view of the future after having seen 9/11 as kids, graduated during the Recession, and believed the lie that a college degree will guarantee you a good paying job; however, a fair amount of us have gotten into technical trades or the military (but not for patriotic reasons). Trust me, after eight years in, 98% of people join the military for the benefits whether its educational, medical, or a retirement after twenty years.

    Oh and God help you if you have a financial emergency because it just might make you homeless. And all this time, the Boomers will blame us for their precious name brand name places collapsing because we're too poor to buy a $3000 engagement ring (jokes on them, the fiancee doesn't care about the cost and her's was about $400). Gen Xers aren't too bad, but really both they and the Boomers need to start blaming Gen Z instead.

    I was already a legal adult well out of high school by the time 9/11 happened (19 years old), and graduating college (an quite a bit later than most, at that) when the 2008-2009 recession hit. Dang. :oops:
