Every millennial has confided with a “Bro, I am broke,” at one point or to the other. And we can relate pretty much. We are the generation of the urban poor, the working class that earns enough but is unable to get by with the same budget because they have too much to spend but too little in terms of earning. No matter what is your pay scale, these youngsters are everywhere, looking for an alternative, trying their hand at freelance work, hoping to make that extra buck. What they don’t see is that they have all the money they need, only they are not judicially utilising it anymore.
The fact that people are dissatisfied with their pay has got more to do with the things they can’t seem to buy or the parties they can’t attend by the end of the month and less to do with their personal disenchantment with their profession. It is quite easy to pass the buck, and ask for money and then find yourself in the vicious cycle of borrowing money. But the problem doesn’t stop at the woes of the wallet. Too many of the so called millennial generation has internalised the fact that they need earn more, you have got to spend more. This very disillusionment has the young backpacker going on an overseas trip and exhausting his/her saving. The same cacophony has them believing that they party every night even if it is not the weekend and you have got to stay up in the game.
