A special on 60 Minutes I thought you may like:


Move over Generation X! The "Millennials" are here and they're taking over the American workplace. There are about 80 million of them - born between 1980 and 1995 - and they approach business in revolutionary new ways. They need pampering, some say coddling, and if you don't tell them what they want to hear, they're gone! Come along as Morley Safer walks a mile in their flip-flops.

It's funny how they make millenials--which from their description sound like many creatively self-employed people--out to be the bad guys. Plenty of people my age and beyond--I'm 29, not quite a millenial, but close enough--are hardworking and not selfish. More on millenials.

What horrible generalizations!

Shame on you, 60 Minutes!
