THESE days it’s all about Gen Y and attracting young people to workplaces, but futurist Bernard Salt believes there’s one group we should all feel sorry for: Generation X.
“Baby Boomer management went straight to the Y’s. ‘Are we paying you enough Generation Y? Is anyone being mean to you Generation Y? Can I get you a pillow Generation Y?’,” Salt said.
He said his overall observation was that Gen X were the “silent generation”, who Baby Boomers were relying on to fund their retirement.
“Gen X never got their moment in the sun.”
