Gen Y

What is Generation Y?

- The Silent generation are the people born before 1946.

- The Baby Boomers are people born between 1946 and 1959.

- Generation X, are people born between 1960 and 1979.

- Generation Y, are people born between 1980 and 2000

Why do we call the last group Generation Y? (I never did know).

Recently a cartoonist explained it very eloquently below....
And I learned something new today!

Peace

Funny! I have to say though, this pack of kids are inheriting debt, that the last generations rolled up- and I think they got screwed..

I wonder what Gen Z will look like.

I always thought that the Baby Boomers extended into the mid-60's, so I've learned something new today, too.

Happy New Year, Odat!

it's the why generation cuz when they hit the real world/work force all you ever hear from them is;
WHY do I have to do that?
WHY me?
