More really BAD signs from the Millennial generation…

Here are some real numbers about Millennials – I see a lot of people complaining about this generation, and I see a ton of pushback on social media. I wanna see some real numbers. 

Here are some:

recent study from Merrill Lynch found that 79 percent of parents continue to serve as the “family bank” for their grown-up children, paying for big-ticket items like college and weddings, but also for smaller, everyday expenses. Parents of adult children contribute $500 billion annually — twice the amount that they invest in their own retirement accounts. 

That’s not overly bad – if people are simply helping their kids get through college with some money, who cares? But this one really gets me:

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 34.1 percent of people aged 18 to 34 lived under their parents’ roof in 2015. That’s up from 26 percent in 2005.



8% growth is one third greater from the first percentage. And that is a LOT. 

And it gets worse:

One in four young people living in their parents’ home neither go to school nor work.    

Wow. Now that is bad. What are they doing with their time? Two things: trolling on social media and video games. You think the majority of these people will become functioning members of society? I doubt it. 

LOOK, these are all generalizations and they don’t apply to everyone – of course there are good decent Millennials. But as a generation, I worry for the future of our country. 

Like, for instance, this was earlier this week, but also a bad sign:

Man. I don’t know. I just don’t know…
