One of the keys to our generation is, as one of my undergrad instructors commented, that whatever we are has been subject to the larger population, the boomers. The economy got bad and the boomers wouldn’t retire, so we couldn’t move up. In the meantime, Gen Y has gotten to the point that they are competition for us, and we now have the disadvantage of age discrimination to face.
