Millennials in the Workforce, A Generation of Weakness

This was surprising to me because I thought this was going to be another video shitting all over "Millennials", but it was a stark and fair look at this issue, which I don't believe is as widespread as people seem to think it is.  There are obviously Millennial leaders out there who are taking life by the balls and bringing it to heel, but those stories aren't as clickable as "IDIOT MILLENNIAL DOESN'T CARE ABOUT A ROTH IRA".  I didn't like how the end of the video gave a solution and then quickly skirted it by...we're going to rely on corporations?  Seems pretty foolish.  If anyone can change your life it's YOU, not someone else.

Still a good watch, 5/5 from me.

I visit cracked fairly often and over the past few years it has become pretty obvious that they are shifting their content towards the far far left, pandering to Social justice warriors and the like.  They still have some good content from time to time (mostly just thier videos), but most of their articles makes me think of them as buzzfeed light. That article is a good example of that.

Ok, this all sounds good and I think I agree with all of it. 

But, let me tell you, we look at the previous generations, from the 70's and the 80's and on average things aren't that much better. Maybe those humans had better coping mechanisms but life and the pursuit of those goals is basically the same.

I believe the meaning of life is the pursuit of experiences that make us happy. Usually those experiences cost money and as the distribution of that said money is very skewd in the populace right now, statistically most humans can't be all that happy.

PS: Seems to me that a few slaps of impact on these youngsters would go a long way to help them find that impact they so eagerly want.
