A recent survey reported that the millennial men in America desire a surprising change in lifestyle, or notably a balanced lifestyle. We Baby Boomers also want the same thing. The difference is that these young men want to help with child care, housework and have their wives succeed equally in their careers. This is pretty foreign to us Boomers and while we have been shifting in that direction, this would be the final step. While the old school traditional roles of men going off to work while women stay home has been dead for some time, this new trend is still a bit foreign to some. These changes are inevitable. This survey points out that the millennial mindset is very different from that of the Baby Boomers.
The millennial generation is defined as the group of people basically from 10 to 30 years of age. Before you dismiss them, take note that this generation is estimated to be at 80 million strong. This is relevant because it is a large generation segment, so it may be wise to heed a little attention to them. The other fact is they are on the cusp of becoming the largest generational group in the American workforce. Some even say that day has already arrived—and they want change.
