Think about the following: •The Millennial Generation is the most educated, but also the generation most in debt with student loans. They are having a hard time finding jobs after college. Many are forced to go back home, and live with their parents after college. •Millennials are changing the look of spending in America- their spending habits are different •Millennials are getting married later and having less children •Millennials are changing the look of politics in America •Millennials are worried about the environment

Now that you have read about the many different ways that the Millennial Generation is different from the Silent Generation, the Baby Boomer Generation, and Generation X, think about the ways you think this generation is impacting our country- socially, politically, environmentally, economically and financially.

For this discussion, please present in two paragraphs, your own views on how today’s young adults (the Millennial Generation) will change our society. Take a position and defend it. Again, this is not a discussion about politics- it is a discussion about the culture of the Millennial Generation. We are looking at it from a societal perspective, just as if you were a Sociologist looking at this generation from all different perspectives. What do you think are the positive and negatives that this generation will bring? If you use outside sources in your discussion post, not just your own personal thoughts, then you must use APA citations for those sources.
