In this episode, I explain why, when it comes to job prospects and career advancement for Gen-X, “reality bites”. I propose a rebranding of Gen-X based not on the generation’s perceived lack of influence and underrepresentation in popular culture and sociology, but on its contributions and its historical significance. After all, Gen-X is the last generation to know the world before the internet took over.

Is X really the generation that time forgot? Not anymore.

Please note two corrections to my comments regarding yearly spending per generation. The correct numbers are:

  • Millennials: approx. $200 billion
  • Gen-X: approx. $125 billion
