The jury is still out for the Millennials. Born between the years of 1979 and 1994, they are just now beginning to enter the workforce. With Gen X-ers craving higher salaries, ﬂexible work arrangements, and more ﬁnancial leverage, the next generation will want even more (Jennings, 2000).
This Millennial generation is said to be the ﬁrst to be born into a wired world; they are ‘connected’ 24 hours a day (Ryan, 2000). Like the Gen X-ers, they have seen their parents downsized and distrust institutions.
They voice their opinions. Having a tremendous appetite for work, Millennials are expected to be the ﬁrst generation to be socially active since the 1960s (Ryan, 2000).
