What would you change about your job, if you could? If you said that you wish you made more money, you're in good company: every age group in our Generations at Work survey, from Baby Boomers to Gen Y, agrees with you.
A third of Americans consider themselves lower class, according to Pew research, compared with a quarter before the recession. The reason? The decline of mid-skilled, mid-wage jobs.
There are two dominant veins of thought about Generation Y that have garnered a lot of media interest in the past several months.
