December 16, 2013

They have been called Gen Y, Millennials, and the Boomerang Generation. There are more than 80 Million Millennials living in America, those born between 1978 and 2000, and it has been tough for them. The average college grad is saddled with more than US$25,000. They face 13.2% unemployment, up from 7.7% 5 years ago, according to the Bureau of Labor, and they hit the job market at one of the worst economic times ever. They were taught to work hard, get an education and join the 40-hour workweek for 40 years retirement plan. Then the rug was yanked out from underneath them. They hit the job market and found the 40/40 plan was gone forever. As a result, some are angry and under-employed, some are entrepreneurial and doing well. But all of them are techno savvy and have been left alone to find their own way. When you think about it they have opportunities their parents only dreamed of. In this episode we talk to Miki Agrawal about the endless opportunities she has made for herself.
