From Boomers, now Millennials to Gen Z.
Boomers first learned they were no longer the chosen generation on television, November 4, 2007 as news correspondent Morley Safer from “60 minutes” introduced his audience to millennials.
His opening comments were profound while poignant:
Stand back all bosses! A new breed of American worker is about to attack everything you hold sacred: from giving orders, to your starched white shirt and tie. They are called, among other things, “millennials.” There are about 80 million of them, born between 1980 and 1995, and they’re rapidly taking over from the baby boomers who are now pushing 60.
