    Ben Barker had already been in South America for three months when he decided not to return to his job at a Fort Collins, Colorado coffee shop. The 29-year-old had practiced energy healing with a shaman in Guatemala and earned a certificate in sustainable agricultural development, but he wasn't done exploring – and work could wait.
  • 3 Reasons Why So Many Millennials Love Socialism

    It’s true that socialist Bernie Sanders is anything but a millennial. And it’s true that socialism was popular long before any millennials were born. But there’s no doubt that socialism is becoming increasingly popular among young people today. Why?According to the Daily Caller, “Young people view socialism as more attractive than older people. Of people ages 18-29, 55 percent considered socialism favorably compared to other age groups, according to a 2016 Gallup poll. Only 37 percent of people between the ages 30 and 49 viewed socialism as positive. Twenty-seven percent of people between 50 and 64 years old thought of...
  • Poll: Young People Don’t Like Trump, But They Don’t Like Voting Either

    How much does the rumored “blue wave” rely on the youth vote? This is of particular concern for Democrats when it comes to the 18-29 demographic which regularly leans toward the progressive side these days. If a recent poll from the Public Religion Research Institute and the Atlantic is any indication, there’s plenty to worry about. (I actually picked this up from a Vox article, but the poll seems legitimate.) While the youngest voters seem to be quite vocal out on the protest beat, fewer than a third of them are sure that they’ll actually show up on election...
  • Why Do Young People Care So Much about Income Inequality?

    National Review ^ | 07/19/2018 | Brad Polumbo
    It’s the wrong thing to be worried about. When Bernie Sanders came to the University of Massachusetts Amherst during his campaign for president, thousands of my fellow students turned out to hear him speak. With his many campus visits, the socialist senator certainly left an impression — roughly 2 million young people voted for him in 2016. Thanks to people like Sanders, the idea that income inequality is the “defining issue of our time” has been burned into the collective consciousness of my generation, so much so that a GenForward survey found that economic inequality was one of the highest...
  • Millennials want to retire by 61, but most have nothing saved

    Millennials may have only a little saved for retirement, but they still want to retire early. A recent Bankrate.com survey asked millennials, classified as Americans ages 18 to 37, what the perfect time to retire would be. Their answer: 61 years old.

    It's hard to draw any hard conclusions from a new survey from CreditCards.com that paints millennials – America's largest demographic, often dismissed by older folks as the Entitled Generation – as the "worst tippers in the U.S." According to the survey, a weighted study of 1,000 interviews, 10 percent of millennials routinely stiff their servers at restaurants. Compare that figure with the percentage of Gen Xers and baby boomers who admitted stiffing the wait staff: 1.8 percent and 4.4 percent, respectively. The highest percentage of baby boomers (6.1 percent) who stiffed servers was found in the 64-72 age group, some...

    In case you needed another reason to feel far older than you actually are, a new survey by music streaming platform Deezer, via NME, suggests that by the time you hit 30, you reach something called “musical paralysis.” That means 30-year-olds have hit the threshold when they no longer seek out new music, or are open to listening to something new and beyond their established taste.... Survey participants gave various reasons for just why they’ve checked out of the music scene, mostly citing having children and too demanding a job to keep up with what’s new. A considerable 65 per...

    Millennials expect to make it big some day, with more than half reporting that they believe they will eventually become millionaires, according to a new study. Despite having crushing student loans (20 percent never expect to pay them off), credit card and other debt, people born between 1982 and 2000 share a confidence when it comes to their financial outlook. 'Young people are optimistic about the future,' said JJ Kinahan, chief strategist for TD Ameritrade, in a statement on the company's new report. 'On average, survey respondents expect to land a job in their chosen field and be completely financially...

    From the parks of Berkeley to the streets of Brooklyn, and in most every large city in between, they have become an almost inescapable part of urban life. Known by many names – “crusty punks,” “crusties,” “gutter punks,” “crumb bums” and “dirty kids,” to list but a few – this group of young adults has rejected a more traditional 9-to-5 lifestyle in favor of train hopping, panhandling and voluntary homelessness.

    NRA ^ | 5/29/18 | David Burnett
    Do Americans under 30 really hate guns? Earlier this year, victims of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting engaged in class walkouts to protest the supposed “easy access” to guns after a disturbed gunman’s six-minute murder spree. They were openly embraced by gun control advocates and anti-gun politicians, prominently featured and promoted by the media, and lauded as the “fierce voice” of the next generation that would “finally act” on gun control and maybe even turn elections. What followed was the sort of inconsistency one might expect from turning control of a public policy debate over to minors. The junior advocates...

    In the United States, the percentage of adults identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender has increased to 4.5 percent, according to a year-long survey, which also shows that the biggest increase has been among millennials. Gallup's daily tracking in 2017 has found that more than 11 million adults now identify as LGBT in the country, which is 4.5 percent of the population — up from 4.1 percent in 2016 and 3.5 percent in 2012. The increase is driven primarily by the millennials, meaning those born between 1980 and 1999, as those from this group who identify as LGBT rose...

    A frustrated couple are taking their own 30-year-old son to court today after trying and failing to get him to fly the coop. Mark and Christina Rotondo, of Camillus, New York, say their son doesn't pay rent or help out around the house so they've had it. Over the past three months, they've given him five written notices to move out, but he has ignored their orders. They initially tried to get him evicted, but learned that since he is a family member, he would have to be removed from their home through an ejectment proceeding.

    American Thinker ^ | 05/17/2018 | Rick Moran
    A headline in The Hill captures a significant moment in American history: "Four socialist-backed candidates win Pennsylvania legislative primaries." The Democratic Socialists of America supported all four candidates, who will almost certainly win in November, given their lack of GOP opponents. The DSA itself thinks socialism's time has come: The DSA hailed the legislative victories as a huge moment for the socialist movement.  Arielle Cohen, co-chair of the Pittsburgh DSA chapter, told HuffPost that she feels a "monumental shift" after the victories, noting DSA's growing membership since President Trump's election. "We won on popular demands that were deemed impossible.  We won on health care for...

    ABC News ^ | 05/15/2018 | By ALLISON DE JONG
    The nation’s religious makeup has shifted dramatically in the past 15 years, with a sharp drop in the number of Americans who say they’re members of a Protestant denomination – still the nation’s most prevalent religious group – and a rise in the number who profess no religion. On average last year, 36 percent of Americans in ABC News/Washington Post polls identified themselves as members of a Protestant faith, extending a gradual trend down from 50 percent in 2003. That includes an 8-point drop in the number of evangelical white Protestants, an important political group. Reflecting the change among Protestants,...

    Nothing rounds out the day like a good “America in decline” poll. I don’t think is evidence of decline per se, of course. I’m not religious myself. But it’s hard not to notice that tribalism, political and otherwise, seems to be expanding as religious identity weakens. And that many of those substitute tribal identities are underwhelming or obnoxious.
  • Should British Millennials get $13,500 to reduce young-old inequality?

    Should young people in the United Kingdom be given Ł10,000 ($13,500) when they turn 25? A top think tank says yes. The proposal from the Resolution Foundation is one of a number of suggestions for reducing inequality between the young and old. British Millennials and their peers in other developed countries have fallen behind older generations when it comes to wealth, income and home ownership, a trend that politicians have been slow to address in the wake of the global financial crisis. "We need not just some tinkering, but some big and dramatic solutions," said Matt Whittaker, deputy director at...

    More than one-fifth of millennials in the U.S. -- 22 percent -- haven't heard of, or aren't sure if they've heard of, the Holocaust, according to a study published Thursday, on Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day. The study, which was commissioned by The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany and conducted by Schoen Consulting, also found that 11 percent of U.S. adults overall haven't heard of the Holocaust or aren't sure if they did. Additionally, 41 percent of millennials believe two million Jews or fewer were killed during the Holocaust, the study found. Six million Jews were killed in World...

    CBS Pittsburgh ^ | April 5, 2018 | Staff
    A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round. The national poll reveals that 18 to 24-year-olds are the largest group in the country who refuse to accept the scientific facts of the world’s shape. YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” Science teachers across the U.S. will be shaking their heads after learning that...

    Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) is a huge part of the Millennial psyche. But while that extends to everything that goes down on social media, this generation doesn’t seem to be worried about missing out on retirement funds. Millennials—or Generation Y—are today’s late teens and twenty-somethings born in the 80s and 90s, and they number some 80 million people in the United States. And because FOMO is the Millennial common denominator, the financial detours are numerous. Thanks to the meteoric rise of social media advertising, Millennials have endless options for spending money, and they account for an estimated $1.3 trillion...
