Generation Y Explained


[tweetmeme source=”GaryFranklin”]
This came to me today from a colleague. I can’t take the orginal credit for it but thought it would be useful for many of us who are confused at where the different tags begin and end.

– People born before 1946 were called The Silent generation,

– People born between 1946 and 1964 are called The Baby Boomers,

– People born between 1965 and 1979 are called Generation X,

– And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called Generation Y,

Why do we call the last group Generation Y?

Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
Y should I clean my room?
Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
Y should I buy any food?

But a cartoonist explained it very eloquently below…
