Gen Y Gets A Reality Check

On the CNN Money/Fortune website today, fellow Gen X'er and contributor Alexandra Levit pens a great article titled Scared Straight: How Gen Y Has Benefited From the Recession. She talks about how this demanding, all-knowing, super special generation has received quite the reality check in the wake of the great recession.

I talked about this in one of my very first blog posts back in August "This Is My Gen X Confession". My generation grew up with the ideas that independence, hard work, and paying your dues would eventually get you ahead in life. Unfortunately, we started to realize about 10 years ago, Gen X may have been sold a bill of goods.

Now, the "entitled" Gen Y is starting to figure out the world doesn't revolve around them, despite what their parents told them.
