Generation Y and the Recession

Just a few interesting links and articles about Generation Y (my generation) and the current economic situation:

Turn Gen Y's 'unreasonable' requests into a negotiating tool

What is Generation Y? from wikipedia:
Generation Y, also known as The Millennial Generation, is a term used to describe the demographic cohort following Generation X. Its members are often referred to as "Millennials"[1] or "Echo Boomers"[2]) . There are no precise dates for when Gen Y begins and ends. Most commentators use dates from mid 1980s to early 1990s.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9]Members of Generation Y are primarily the offspring of Generation Jones and the Baby Boom Generation
Generation Y, like other generations, was shaped by the events, leaders, developments and trends of its time.[17] The rise of instant communication technologies made possible through use of the internet, such as email, texting, and IM and new media used through websites like YouTube and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, may explain Generation Y's reputation for being peer oriented and for seeking instant gratification. This trend of communication is continuing into Generation Z.
