Millennials Don’t Consider Themselves Adults Until 30, Researcher Says
And surprise: the oldest ones are now pushing 40, CBS Research guru David Poltrack explains
According to new research by CBS’ TV ratings guru David Poltrack and Nielsen Catalina Solutions, the youngest millennials should be graduating college this year — but that doesn’t mean they all consider themselves adults.
The median age of millennials is 30, Poltrack says — meaning that half are older and half are younger. And 30 happens to be the age at which millennials tend to self-identify as adults, Poltrack said. For these purposes, an “adult” is defined as “someone who has moved out of their parents’ home, has a job, and pays their own bills.”
vHow did millennials start seeming so middle-aged? Poltrack says it because of “lazy” classifications that defined millennials as those 18-to-34. Poltrack, one of the most respected people in studying the demographics of TV viewers, uses designations like “millennial” to simplify who’s watching what.
He and the Center for Generational Kinetics both use the term to describe those born between 1979 and 1995, based on years prescribed by William Strauss and Neil Howe’s book “Generations.” It defines a generation as lasting for 18 years, and works forward from the giant Baby Boomer generation. Their kids, the next largest generation, are millennials. People born after 1995 are actually members of Gen Z.
Why are millennials taking so long to grow up and move out? Some of it is their fault, some of it is their parents’ fault, and much of it is everyone’s fault. [snip]
Like hell, you’re blaming their screwing up on me. How many of he precious darlings are and/or were willing to take a job riding the back of a garbage truck? Cleaning up city parks? Do they have any skills to work in a kitchen, cook, prep, wash dishes? Clean hotel/motel rooms. Don’t tell me their aren’t jobs, I know there are. I did them when times were tough.
The problem with those jobs are you have to put down the damn smart phone for eight hours. Your hands are going to get dirty and you have to show up every day on time. AND MOST OF ALL THERE ARE NO TROPHIES FOR THE WORK.
