Firestorms online are just that. With a full 35% of Millennials living as adults with their parents, and another 25 to 35% still in school, and yet another 40% still fully employed, that doesn't leave many to squawk.

Anyway, does a serious 27 year old think that he/she can take over the managerial position of a 50 year old?

Keith, very interesting article. Thank you.

While it is inescapable that boomers caused today's current job market (we elected the government, we took out loans we couldn't afford, we staffed the banks that made those loans and we staffed the rating agencies that rated the loan packages as AAA, we even bought the loans as investments) it's not clear what we need to do to make that up to today's 20 somethings.

Personally I'm keeping my job and working everyday to grow my business so we can hire more young people. I want those 20 year olds to have a good life too.
