So i've just arrived home after a few friday drinks with co-workers, and ended up talking economics with some 'older' guys on site(55+). I commented on the occupy wall st protests, and that if the world was to collapse, it would mostly(not entirely!) be gen y that have to pick up the pieces and pay higher taxes to recover from the indulgence of the baby boomers and all this government debt.
I received comments like, "generation y need to actually be working to pay taxes" and "it scares me that gen y will be supporting my pension" and things of this nature. So i was just curious as to the general opinion of people on this forum towards gen y. have you had some bad experiences in your workplace or business? maybe some good experiences? do you believe we are a lost cause?
Just after some opinions is all
PS i am aware that baby boomers too will pay for their greedy ways in way of depreciating assets and lost wealth on markets around the world(IF the world was to collapse).
i'm the first to admit i'm a victim of greed.
