Mommy and Daddy’s Darling "Millenials"


Probably not the greatest way to start the day – especially a beautiful Saturday morning like this one, but while reading the Greenwich Time, I zeroed in on an article about our newly graduated generation, otherwise known as the “Millenials”. Makes them sound so important (perhaps in their own minds), and hopefully one day they will influence the real estate market, but how much longer will they be living at home? In Fairfield County the percentage of our graduates still living at home,   is the highest in the nation…

WAAAA – WAAA – I can’t get a job – I wonder why?
Here’s a paragraph taken by the story as reported by the Greenwich Time:
“But 24 percent is child’s play compared to the rate here. In Fairfield County, 34 percent of millennials between the ages of 25 and 29 still lived with their parents, according to an August 2012 study. At one-in-three instead of the one-in-four national rate, the county surpassed every other metropolitan statistical area in the nation. And compared to Des Moines, which has the smallest percentage, Fairfield County has four times as many millennials staying at home.”
