There is a large issue or the Millennials in America.  Age 18 – 36, the largest demographic in our country, 87 million.

The cost of education is 600 times more than it was 60 years ago and what we are teaching students is information that has not been updated.

Since the founding of America the millennials are the first generation that are predicted to make less than their parents.

If a Millennial want sot retire by the age of 65 they would have to save 99% of their income.

There is good news!  We live in the age of miracles.  The Millennials the have technology! They are sponsoring companies that enrich the environment, they have the most number of start up companies.

The prediction is that in the next few years Millennials will be involved in government.  Encourage your Millennial to vote and get involved.
