Boomers could drop out , walk half a mile and find a career. Generation X needed a HS diploma. Neither had to deal with debt. Our generation has Harvard grads working at pizza shops, trillions in debt to pay, and more and more employers require a masters or higher. Why rip on us? We stay home until we are 25 because affording 1200 a month for a one bdrm apt is hard on 9-10 bucks an hour. Boomer and gen X built debt with loans , houses , cars, and credit they couldn't afford...yet they blame us ? Most of us couldn't vote even vote in 2008, let alone ruin the economy. I don't understand.

Find yourself fortunate not to hear it then. I, however, see it daily and watch it on Fox News. "Millennials" elected Obama, yet we made up a very small portion of the voting public (most of us couldn't even vote yet). It's pretty sad to see.
Tune out "the angry boomers" yes, but not all boomers believe or feel the same about these matters.
Don't get me wrong, our generation has plenty of issues. We are a instant gratification loving group of NOW. We want to save the world 30 seconds after getting hired. We date by swiping glass. We just aren't responsible for a lot of baggage.
I'm 30 and the senior c# developer at my work place. I don't need a book, but thank you. Far as 'whining' that's what a lot of boomers do and fail to take reasonability. I just pointed out facts against their illogical assertions and asked , why.
