Default Are Millenials strictly a U.S. phenomenon?

Or are there other countries that are seeing these people pop up to?

I am trying to tell if this is a by-product of US celebrity-lifestyle greed, or if it's a worldwide phenomenon driven, perhaps, by the .com over night success bedtime stories that we saw in the late '90s and early '00s.

Millennials are labeled for being community focused and seeking instant gratification. Millennials, like other generations, are shaped by the events, leaders, developments and trends of its time.[5] However it is not a defined generation. There is disagreement regarding what defines this generation, as not all people in this demographic use social networking sites such as Facebook, nor is an event such as the Iraq War considered by young people to be a defining event for their generation, in contrast with amassing student loans, degrees and credit debt, all of which are considered more direct, influential experiences.

What are your thoughts?

They amass debt like it's going out of style.

Essentially - it's daddy's little boy and daddy's little girl entering the work force. They don't want to work, they want a lot of money and a lot of things, and they WANT THEM RIGHT NOW DAMNIT!!! *STOMP* *STOMP* *STOMP*

**side note: I just interviewed one of these worthless sacks of sh*t and trust me, they ain't gettin a call back.

It's very bad in my field of work. I get very low experienced people with crap portfolio's asking for outrageous amounts of cash. I had to blow out 3 designers in the last few months that could talk a good game but could not come close to delivering. These people were in the age group you were talking about.

Being part of this generation (born in 1984) I must completely agree with what you said. It's the fast food society. I am disgusted by the people that are considered part of my generation and I loathe the fact that I am sometimes lumped in with them. I can only thank my parents for the way i turned out. My parents made me get a job when i was 14 and pay for all my own expenses. It has caused me to understand money and how to not spend it.

The part about company loyalty and pay is so true. I started out at the bottom of the current company I work for 5 years ago. I've watched so many co-workers come and go because they thought they should get paid more for what they did, but at the same time would refuse to do anything outside their specific job description. I just kept busting my ass, and now i make more than double what i started out at and am an invaluable resource to my company. I apologize if I sound arrogant, but that is what I was taught about how the world works. You can't say "If you pay me more I'll work harder." That's not how it works.
