My promised pension disappeared. I might need to get out of retirement and start working part time again.
Make informed decisions with the FT
I worry about the future. Past generations entered a relatively more favorable labor market, one won by decades of class struggle and organization.
They also saw the passage of important social reforms. And thank God they did. Imagine how many more older workers would be destitute and worse without the protections offered by Medicare and Social Security. That means, of course, organizing against our bosses and pressuring our political leaders to reshape the economy to work for the many, not snarking at the working people who spent years of their lives providing for us. However, Boomers have been very vocal in online op-eds in their disdain for Millennial culture; mainly describing them as lazy, entitled and narcissistic.
In contrast, Millennials, and potentially members of Generation Z, openly ridicule and criticize Boomers for their supposed roles in the unsavory climate of the modern era. On May 12th, , a Facebook group named "A group where we all pretend to be boomers"  was created. The rules involve posting in character only and limiting google search posts. The group gained over 63, members in a month and a half.
The tweet garnered over , likes and 37, retweets in three days. Shut the Fuck up, Boomer! Old Economy Steven is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of young man wearing a blue collared shirt with a s haircut. The captions typically depict the man as being out-of-touch with the frustrations young people experience in the 21st century economic climate, including dealing with student loans, unemployment and rising housing costs. Prior to being archived, the post received over 10, up votes and comments.
Millennials Are Killing is a phrasal template used to mock various think-pieces and op-ed articles on the changing consumer habits of the Millennial generation and their allegedly negative impact on major industries and economic sectors that had once thrived during the latter half of the 20th century. A "Millennials are Killing X" trend piece generally involves a writer from the Boomer generation noting that millennials' financial situation high student loans, lack of available, well-paying jobs have made millennials unwilling or unable to spend as freely as their ancestors, and that this phenomenon is hurting either a specific industry or the American economy as a whole.
Gothamist and The New York Times published articles compiling and criticizing Boomer pieces criticizing Millennials the same year. Yep, this one's Going in my Boomer Compilation. I won't say it's bad advice, but maybe looking at it as not being too proud to do the dirty work to get to where you want to go is better advice.

Then use that experience to get your next job. TheDavidestDave Report. There's an article out there somewhere, that showed you could pay your way through Harvard on minimum wage with something like an average of four hours work a day, and now you would need to work 72 hours a day to achieve the same not the exact figures, but something equally crazy.
They should follow their own advice. Or is this one of those "Do as I say, don't do as I do" things? RichChappo Report.

Things have changed, and this generation has to make it fit for them. It should not be a fight, but each group learning from each other. I hate the terms boomer and millenial as they're only ever used as insults now. Can't we just admit that good and bad come in all ages.

It's ok, the millennials will be complaining about their kids one day. That's why God, or Mother Nature or the alien mother planet made us have an expiration date. The world is constantly changing and it's our choice whether we want to listen to the people most affected by that change or not. For someone like me in my 50s , that often means listening to and learning from people who are younger than me. I'm okay with that. Many people aren't. People seem to forget that, every generation deals with changes from the previous. We learn from them, they are our parents and our grandparents.
They made us who we are. You can't blame people for living for what they stood for. Our children and children's children will probably think what we did can be done in better ways. As a kind we need generation upon generation to show improvement. That little tug o war we are always in makes us what we are now.
Always room for improvement. Let's hope that there is less blaming and judging and more learning and communicating in the future. It's the boomers that built the internet and many products we take for granted.
All because they did sometimes wear a tie or have the women take care of the kids and put a little make up on and went in for an application or not have tattoes or pink hair. And now we do it differently. Hashtag endrant. Another reason why they kill us off after a certain age. I think it's possible BP has miscalculated who their key demographic on this site is The Boomers were not a perfect generation which one ever is?
