OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
According to a Clark University poll of Emerging Adults, 75% of young Americans are trying to be independent and don’t want to rely on their parents
The poll also showed that the Millennial generation cares more about having an impact than making a profit, with 85% of respondents saying that they would prefer a job that made a difference
While the majority says that they often feel anxious, 85% state that life is fun and exciting
WHY WE CARE
The Millennial generation is frequently called lazy and uninterested, and has been labeled by some as “Generation Why Bother.” This poll shows otherwise.
The combination of “anxious” and “excited” leads to a few traits that are unique to young Americans: cautions optimism and a desire to find where we fit in the world
Many older adults are comparing young Americans to a standard that is outdated and obsolete
