I will probably upset ninety percent of the population over the age of thirty with my next statement, so with that said, I over my life time have come to believe there are many lessons older generations can learn from mine; also referred to as the millennials. My generation consists of anyone born from 1995-2005, and there is no shortage of criticism from the older population on our faults and life choices. Every move forward my generation seems to make is met with a huge wave of resistance coming from the rest of the citizens in America. This is where if the older generations were willing to give our unconventional ways just a second of attention they may be surprised and learn a thing or two from us growing up in this era. Some of the main things I believe they could benefit from learning from us is the fact that technology is not going anywhere and they should learn to love it as it continues to advance. They should not measure their life success based on money but instead of happiness and how complete they feel within themselves. No one should get too busy with work or stressed over living that they forget it is fine to relax and have fun every now and then. Another big lesson is they could learn to be more open minded and accepting of everyone around them, including everyone in the LGBTQ+ community as well as people of different races. My generation is also a lot more cynical than the older population which usually comes with a negative connotation but I believe you

We all will one day face the reality of growing older. There are many aspects of this change that will affect us in a large way. According to the Merck Manual of Health and Aging, 1.5% of Americans are 85 or older. This research states that the number of people 100 years or older could rise from 1 out of 5,578 in the year 2000, to 1 out of 472 in the year 2050. It brings out that women have a longer life expectancy than men, among people aged 65 and older in the year 2000, there were 70 men for every 100 women. For people aged 85 and older the figure was 41 men for every 100 women. The site goes on to say that approximately 11% of Americans aged 65 and older are below the poverty line. (The Merck Manual of Health and Aging:

The “pig in the python” describes the role of the baby boomers generation through time. As the baby boomers creep towards retirement age, a problem comes in being able to provide retirement services for a large population from a comparatively smaller population of workers. The baby boomers were a generation that defined America, contributing much to it’s growth but in return created plenty of problems that we will deal with for years to come.
In today’s society, the work industry is comprised of numerous generations from baby boomers to millennia’s. Due to reasons ranging from increased cost of living to political policies, Americans are being forced to work longer in order to obtain the social security benefits they’ve contributed to during their careers. Each generation has certain generational influences such as war times and civil rights for the baby boomers and social media and the technology boom for the millennia’s. One constant that has not changed, however, is that the average American has to work for a living, and with the evolution of the US economy, they are having to work longer and are retiring later.
Canada is currently a very prosperous issue. However, there are a number of potential issues that could threaten this prosperity. These issues are economic, political, social and demographic in nature. In many cases these issues are a combination of economic, political, social and demographic factors.
What if i were to ask you a question? What makes you capable to think about your answer? What do you think makes you capable of reading this paper? Do you remember learning skills you still use today like learning to talk or walk even think? What if i were to ask you to recall your favorite memory of your happiest or saddest day would you remember it clearly? Clearly your brain is at work in all these examples but how does your brain understand this jumble of words in this paper? I 'll explain how that works and how the brain of a certain generation can affect everything even the economy
The generation of hard working Americans that innovated our way of life and catapulted us into the twenty first century is aging. This fact alone will lead to skyrocketing medical costs and a compromised lifestyle for those in the Baby Boomer generation. As a result, a large number of diseases will increase, including Alzheimer's. According to The Alzheimer’s Association, “These numbers will escalate rapidly in coming years, as the baby boom generation has begun to reach age 65 and beyond, the age range of greatest risk of Alzheimer's.” A shocking “estimated 10 million baby boomers will develop Alzheimer’s” and “by 2050, an American will develop Alzheimer’s every 33 seconds”
With the aging society in America means that there will be larger number of older people than young people. As a result of this fewer people will have to pay taxes to support public necessities and there will be fewer young people to provide services for the elders. This will also highly affect the health care in America because many seniors will have a chronic illness and there will be a shortage of healthcare workers to assist them. This will affect retirement because retirement income is made up of welfare payments, savings, and public and private pensions. Most publicly financed retirement pensions are funded by programs or most commonly know, social security. Social security is a universal income support program for elders and is usually

Millenials is the name given to the generation who reached adulthood around the turn of the 21st century, they were born during 1975 and 1995 which was the Cold War era. The millennial is given the nickname as the television or digital age. The popularity of television boomed in their time was a result of the Space Race and America's curiosity of what would have been called the impossible. In the 1940's there was only a few tv's but in the-the 1970's the amount of tv's surged to four million plus. The Millenials grew up in a society when the social norm was for an individual to watch tv five hours a day. The United States victory was largely contributed to great communication technology. An example was in the Civil War when President Lincoln would command the military thousands of miles away. What strengthened the Millenial ideology is communication and getting full
“I have studies! I have statistics!” (par. 20) claims Joel Stein, a regular contributor for the TIME magazine. In “The New Greatest Generation: Why Millennials Will Save Us All,” Stein writes about the millennials, people born between 1980 and 2000. Using a very clever gimmick, he points out the unfavorable features of millennials at the beginning of his article, just to create a stronger rebuttal afterwards. He claims that the “millennials’ self-involvement is more a continuation of a trend than a revolutionary break from previous generations… [and] they’ve just mutated to adapt to their environment” (Stein par. 14). By utilizing rhetorical devices and various writing approaches, Joel Stein attempts to persuade the older generations to reconsider their opinion of millennials and presents his claim that the millennials inherited their characteristics from previous generations and have adapted to their environment.
The workforce is seeing up to five generations working together for the first time in history. People are choosing to work longer and delay retirement. Ultimately, the workforce could experience up to six generations working together. It’s the role of business leaders to embrace diversity and guide their teams to cohesion. Generational gaps can pose challenges in the workplace, but understanding each generation 's unique characteristics and skills sets will assist in effectively managing diversity to keep a peaceful coexistence.
The CDC (2013) defines aging in place as “the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level” (Healthy places terminology). The idea of aging in place has received growing attention from many entities over the past decade. According to AARP (2014), one in three Americans is now 50 or older, and by 2030, one in five Americans will be 65 and older. Moreover, evidence exists that home evaluation and home modification interventions are effective in promoting home safety, positively influencing task performance, and reducing falls in the older adult population. Regarding health care practitioners and older adults, a variety of major public health problems exist
Baby Boomers have been one of the most powerful forces in shaping the economic environment and are the wealthiest generation in the United States (Kotler and Armstrong, 2015). “In their early years, “Leading Edge” Boomers enjoyed economic prosperity, and their resulting financial power in their prime years drove rising trends in everything. However, the recessionary years of the early 1970’s also added cautionary realities to their youthful consumption and employment dreams” (“America’s Oldest Boomers”, n.d.). Baby boomers control approximately 70% of the disposable income in the United States, therefore, they are known as being one of the most influential financial forces in the marketplace (“Baby Boomers Report”, 2015). As they reach their
Whilst a large amount of information exists in terms of generational cohorts, not all findings are supported by empirical research to link the concept of work engagement to the different generational cohorts. The conventional belief that older people are less engaged and do not find meaning in their work has been proven to be a misconception, which highlights the danger of stereotypical beliefs. The findings suggest that older employees are still very valuable resources and can contribute significantly to the organisation’s success, but have different needs and values than other age groups. The results of this study indicated a significant difference between the Baby Boomer generation and the other two cohorts, but no significant difference
