    Sort of.

    The original definition of Millennials was "those who graduated high school beginning in 2000." Which technically means fall 1981 birthdays as well.

    More reasoned approaches have shown late 1970s through mid-1980s kids have more in common with themselves than the late 80s-1990s "Millennials" that seem to be the stereotype.

    As far as the definition of millennials, I don't really consider people born in the early 80s in this group. We didn't grow up on social media and were much more likely to be outside riding bikes without helicopter moms. I was born in 83 and most of my peer group didn't get a cell phone until college or later. Even then, we could only play "snake" or some other game in it. Txst got added to Facebook when I was probably about 22. When I work with somebody born in the 90s, it's like we might as well be 40 years apart in age.

  • #1162
    Gonna be big difference between urban and rural upbringing in defining generations. City kids born as early as '82 could be millenials, and I'd say almost all city kids born after '85 are millenials. Very few country kids born before '85 are millenials, and some born even into the late 80s would still not fit the millenials description.

    Agree here. I was born in the late 80s and I'd say, probably unfortunately, that my upbringing has much more in common with the kids born in the first half of the 90s than those from the first half of the 80s.

    '85 also represents my cutoff for millennials. 90s babies are the worst though.

    Yep, much more in common with early 90s kids than my early 80s sister. However, late 80s didn't necessarily "grow up" on social media. Facebook wasn't a thing until maybe the end of high school/beginning of college, cell phones were basic as $#@! in high school and I spent my 90s childhood riding bikes without helicopter moms and being a latchkey kid.

    '85 is actually a really good cutoff. You entered middle school with AOL chat rooms. You entered high school with AIM. At UT, you were the first freshman class to have Facebook, which instantly became central to your social life. Upperclassmen were pretty slow to get into it. You graduated into the recession.

    MySpace was big for 85 kids too. And then they transitioned into .edu emails for fb

    My nephew born in '88 became a good ol' boy kicker who drives a pickup and works for AT&T doing DirectTV installs and service. His younger brother born in 1990 is a neck-bearded (sometime) barista who wears a lot of flannel, bow ties, skinny jeans, and ironic hats. So I can sort of see where you're coming from.

    I used to think the "millennials are morons" bit was just olds yelling at clouds. Then, I worked with people that were born in the 90s. I have always believed that work ethic is learned on the job for some people, but these kids took it to a new level. Previously I had never worked with people that made every job that they didn't want to do into a SJW moral obligation to not do the specific task. It was like they would be breaking some sacred SJW religious rule to fill out some report that they didn't want to. Then, when they were made to do the task (because its in their contract) they would cry and complain to anybody that would listen about how awful it was. The only satisfaction I got was the other millennials not caring because they were so absorbed in their own life.

    There's gotta be close to a 1:1 correlation between people who have "SJW' in their lexicon and people who bitch about millennials, right?

    Possibly. Im a decently liberal guy so I have sympathy for some SJW causes. Filling out forms required by law just isn't one of them. Quit turning everything you dont want to do into some moral transgression that would compromise your character.

    I was talking about this with my nephew last night. I think there needs to be a distinction between 90s kids and millennials. In my mind if you follow your friends on twitter and communicate that way with them instead of texting then you are a millineal. If you were born in the mid 80s and grew up in the 90s then you aren't a millineal.

    Why do you find that good? Just out of a sense of spiteful misguided bitchassedness? I honestly don't know, but do you think getting 50 hours a week at your Walmart job is as simple as saying "Hi Mr Walmart manager, I want to work 50 hours a week."?

    Was a bit hyperbolic, but with our 4% unemployment rate, it's pretty close.

    you aren't getting 50hrs a week at most retailers unless you are exempt, in which case, you'll be at 75-80 hrs/wk.

    I have a hard time believing that making pizza is the best job someone with a 4 year degree can find.

    It really isn't or at least shouldn't be, even for non technical/highly applicable degrees. I'm just spitballing, but I wonder if there's more of a disconnect for "the average millenial" in that type of situation (lets say 4 year degree in who cares, not much useful work experience) with the difference between entry level work and menial work (brace yourselves for crotchety puns). I know talking with my girlfriend's dumbass 20 year old sister and brother in law about their work prospects, they weren't really keying in on that difference, or seeing the difference in value between one job that pays similarly to another job but might move the needle a bit more when they're looking for their next thing. But I don't know if that is at all any different than it was at any other time. For me, I certainly didn't really know what I was even looking for straight out of college. Which was foolish, but probably not uncommon.

  • #1188
    I believe in the 1980-1984 mini generation which has a lot of dissimilarities with both Gen X and Millennial. I'm smack dab in the middle born in 1982. I do think that, as a whole, they are more similar to Millennial, and I mean that in a good way. The people in my age group are more optimistic and happy than Gen X who seem to be miserable as $#@!, cubicle jockeys living in the suburbs, who gave up their youthful creativity in their 20s. We have that too in our age group but I know a lot more entrepreneurs and tech people than suburban cubicle jockeys. The ones who ended up miserable at least held on to their early 30's. If believing that there's more to life than 9-5 office job and a McMansion makes one a "snowflake," I think it's a good thing, not bad. Personal observations only but that is how I view it.

    My group of friends were born in 84 and 85 mostly. In my opinion we are not how millennials are defined. Most don't have Facebook, use twitter as news source not a way to communicate. No one works in Tech.

    '86 here and if you weren't on AIM from 2001-2005, Facebook 2005-2008 (when parents began joining everyone jumped ship) and Instagram from 2012 onward you were pretty much irrelevant. I really do think there is a sharp divide around '85, primarily because of how hot Facebook was when it was new and exclusive in 2004-2005.

    SpaceX has a facility in Hawthorne, CA, near LAX. I believe they assemble the boosters there. It's an old Northrop facility. I talked to my friends there, who are older engineers working on the old Northrop 747 fuselage subcontract. They said they have no chance of hiring on to Space X, that they only want to hire the youngs.

    Probably not a bad policy, but they miss out on the 1 out of 50 oldster that still works with energy and has an open mind.

    Not so for her. Ledesma graduated from college four years ago. After moving through a series of jobs, she now earns chooses to only earn $18,000 making pizza at Classic Slice in Milwaukee, shares a two-bedroom apartment with her boyfriend and has $33,000 in student debt.

    85 here, but class of 2004 for high school, so younger 86ers fit in the same age group. I would say that my peers were probably right there in the real transition period. It seems like it took a few years before the stereotypical millenias really hit.I think it also makes a difference on where you grew up. More rural kids have more in common with the city kids a few years behind them. The same probably goes for kids from immigrant families or families in the lower socioeconomic groups that were raising their kids with an eye towards improving their situation in life.

    Pretty funny how you millennials dispute your place. Seems like the millennial thing to do.

    Basically, old enough to remember the time before the Internet but young enough to have also understand the tech. People who came of age right when the Internet did. Basically the bridge between the pre-tech generations and the post-tech generations (Millennials and whatever we call the generation after that).
    This is me. The next greatest generation if you ask me.
