Millennials, you’re far more dangerous than you think
We’ve previously walked you through the casual ‘horrors’ of millennials dragging down fabric softener sales to an all-time low, forgoing medical checkups amid rising healthcare costs, delaying marriage longer than any former generation and even pioneering a worldwide shortage of coffee supplies. But one Mashable writer has hit the jackpot by listing a total of 70 things (yes, 70, you read that right) millennials have reportedly killed.
It turns out every millennial is serial murderer, after all, randomly firing shots at cereal, beer, light yogurt, brunch, bar soap, gyms, stilettos, romance, relationships, trees and the 9-to-5 workday among many other poor victims.
Yes, millennials are a dangerous generation. But, sarcasm aside, they are a positively dangerous generation, one that has dared challenge the status quo and shake up long-standing socio-cultural concepts to forge its own path in today’s world.
They value purpose over matter. Despite struggling with major problems such as the student debt crisis, millennials are not after material gain, nor do they consider the pursuit of profit to be the highest business achievement. Instead, they have been prioritizing more purposeful concepts such as strategy and impact in the workplace.
Unlike previous generations, they are actively seeking a balanced life. In line with the above notion, the Gen Y workforce is willing to sacrifice traditionally attractive factors such as rapid promotion and higher-paying positions in order to maintain a positive work-life balance, which to them is the key to a healthy life.
The aforementioned study-based realities are enough to illustrate the integrity and transformative impact of the millennial generation on the workplace in the direct sense and the world in the broader sense. That is specifically what makes them dangerous, in the best possible way.
