This might explain why 68% of those under 30 voted for Obama over McCain: For millennials, work ethic not defining factor. Are twentysomethings really spoiled and lazy? Survey suggests it’s true.
The millennial generation — about 50 million people between ages 18 and 29 — is the only age group in the nation that doesn’t cite work ethic as one of its “principal claims to distinctiveness,” according to a new Pew Research Center study, “Millennials: Confident. Connected. Open to Change.” The Washington-based nonprofit organization found that young adults and their elders agree: Baby boomers and Generation X-ers have better work ethic and moral values than those in their 20s.
