Some call them millennials, or Generation Y. But the best moniker for today’s Americans under age 35 is the “screwed generation,” says Joel Kotkin in this week’s Newsweek. They’re suffering the biggest wealth gap between younger and older Americans on record. The unemployment rate for those 18 to 29 is 50 percent above the national average, and even those who have landed jobs are often overqualified and underpaid. They’re swimming in debt, recording unprecedented levels of stress, and most will never be able to achieve the economic status or lifestyles their parents enjoy. We interviewed members of the generation, many of whom agree: They’re screwed. Most are cynical, many are frustrated, and yet some are surprisingly optimistic about the opportunities and liberties afforded to them. Take a look.
