In my line of work, I have the pleasure of meeting people from all walks of life. One of the most intriguing groups, are those between the ages of 18 and 34 – Millennials. What I’ve experienced is a rainbow of ethical, emotional and knowledgeable beliefs and lifestyles. On one hand, many of them are the most outgoing, giving and positive people I have ever met. But on the other hand, they can be some of the most self-centered, pessimistic and unrealistic people I have ever met as well. It seems to me, that the philosophical lines which separate these two types of personalities are becoming wider and more defined. They’re either on one side of the spectrum or the other and there is very little in-between. Neither is there a desire to patiently or cordially discuss the other’s point of view. These realizations in and of themselves are an interesting and complicated subject, and one I find fascinating and I will, no doubt, write an article about at a later date. For now however, one area in which both of these groups seem to agree, is in the area of work and retirement.
Many Millennials around the world fear that they will never have the chance to retire. A shocking 56 percent of Millennials think they will not be able to retire until somewhere between the ages of 60 and 69, while 12 percent believe they will need to work until they die – this according to a report by the Manpower Group. The level of pessimism about old age and retirement is highest in Japan where 37 percent of Millennials think they will work without the possibility of retiring. Needless to say, they have been sold a bill of goods.
