A new snapshot of Gen Y workers by PayScale reveals quite a bit. We’ve all seen the movie Failure to Launch and know someone just like that—the slacker who is still living at home. But
are they really slackers? Possibly, they’re just under-recognized achievers. PayScale's recent research shows the latter is much closer to the
truth. Gen Y tends to be very ambitious
and highly educated. In fact, almost 97% of them have at least an Associates
degree. Gen Y individuals with MBAs outnumber those with no higher education.
Not only that, they tend to focus on ambitious majors like Neuroscience,
Bioengineering, Entrepreneurial Studies, Chinese and Sports Management.
Slackers? Not exactly.
