Wall Street Journal staffer Josh Zumbrun counts five ways Millennials are challenged, ranging from work to social issues.
Zumbrun's cohort retorts look at employment rates, marriage rates, the lack of household formation (living with parents), financial literacy, and self-identification. In each area, Millennials come out looking like a beleaguered group of young adults. Zumbrun writes;
When the Pew Research Center asked millennials what generation they belong to, over 20% of millennials said they’re baby boomers or generations that lived through World War II. Only 40% were willing to self-identify as millennials.
