Who are Millennials?
Though there is debate about the age cut-off for the Millennials,
for the purpose of this documentary we are adhering to
the age range as defined by generational
theorists Strauss and Howe:
those born between
1982 and 2004.
Why do Millennials Matter?
There are 80 million Millennials
By 2020, Millennials will
constitute nearly half of the American workforce.
“They are today's young people, a new generation with sky-high expectations and a need for constant praise and fulfillment.”
“Today’s Millennials don’t like to own anything — besides businesses, that is.”
“We need to hire a 22-22-22,” one new-media manager was overheard saying recently, meaning a 22-year-old willing to work 22-hour days for $22,000 a year. Perhaps the middle figure is an exaggeration, but its bookends certainly aren’t.”
