My take on millennialls is that I hear you saying they're lazy and entitled and snowflakes but what I SEE is: young people whose parents are saddled with more debt than any other generation, so they work hard and often live at home still in order to help support their family. I see kids working double shifts at Starbucks taking your crap when you complain that it took twenty seconds longer than necessary to get your latte. I see them finding the job market in no way matches their educations, and that rent and insurance alone fills a paycheck. I find very hard working people who want success as much as their parents did, but whose tech or manufacturing starter jobs mostly got outsourced to cheaper countries. I see a very industrious generation that most of us raised completely inadequately to the demands of adult reality, but they adjust to meet the real world very quickly. I see far fewer drug addicts and slackers than I did in my own Gen-X. I know it's fun to make fun of the digital generation, but for the most part, I see people doing really well turning into adults.
