3 ways Millennials are making life better for all of us!Lifestyle The List
People who say that Millennials are "lazy" and "entitled" might have to eat their own words – Sociologists have found that Millennials are actually doing a lot of the legwork when it comes to changing the economy, job landscape, and more. Still a Millennial naysayer? Let Kristina Guerrero and our team of experts, Jason Dorsey and Dr. Lisa Whitaker help you get hip with 3 big ways Millennials are changing the world, for good.
1. Cancelling Credit Cards
Millennials have made credit cards more useful for every generation by making them more rewarding. This group isn't interested in racking up debt (if they don't have enough already, thanks to student loans) or doing any running around fees and interest rates – and when people aren't choosing credit cards, credit companies are working harder to get your business.
2. Bolstering the Workforce
While many complain that Millennials are "too entitled" to work jobs, the group is actually dedicated to their work and want it to be meaningful. They are more likely to hold their employers and coworkers accountable for making a difference, and, for treating people the right way inside the office.
As a group that is more open than others and tends to judge less, Millennials in the workplace will fight for the same type of understanding for others as well.
3. Flipping the Housing Industry
Now, Millennials aren't looking to have a certain type of house, but a place they can actually afford. This means the housing industry is changing to accommodate young people who don't mind living further outside of a city, or directly in the city; as opposed to appealing to the old standard housing desires of "a house with big front and back yards, French doors, and a two-car garage."
