Media To Thrifty Millennials: SHAME, SHAME, SHAME


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Hey Millennials, the media has a message for you, EMBARASSMENT on you for being thrifty. Ana Kasparian, Kim Horcher as well as Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Inform us what you think in the comment area below.

Read more right here:

" Millennials are intimidating lots of industries.

They do not buy paper napkins. They will not play golf. They aren't purchasing homes or cars. And also they're not even eating at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Millennials' financial decisions have been greatly covered by media companies– something that has irritated much of the generation, as information that "millennials are eliminating" one more sector has actually ended up being a typical headline." *.

Hosts: Ana Kasparian, Kim Horcher, Brett Erlich.

Cast: Ana Kasparian, Kim Horcher, Brett Erlich.

    Yeah, we should totally spend tons of money we don’t have so that the economy crashes. Just like the Baby Boomers did.

      It seriously pisses off the older crowd that I have ZERO desire to make a lot of money, or need a lot of money to live the way I choose to live….it really does piss them off…I spend my money on having fun, getting into hobbies I enjoy, etc. And I don’t need a ton of disposable income to do so…hell, the blatant consumerism starts to become a turn off…a legit stomach turning reaction when I see old folks sloughing pounds of food into their face at a restaurant, I literally feel sick to the stomach. There is no need for it, and to put some kind of onus onto others for not wanting to partake, well, get a life, I would say! Quite frankly…part of my way of doing something about my dissatisfaction with society is to scale back my participation in it to as minimal as possible. I speak with my dollars, and I don’t support the current state of society and where it’s heading, so I will contribute as little as humanly possible…I don’t owe this country a thing…my existence would continue with or without it. I pay my taxes, and that is all that can be asked of me…suck it up.

    It’s just more of the “blame everyone else for your problems” bullshit mentality. Just like how rich people and republicans want people blaming immigrants and poor people for all of the country’s problems instead of income inequality and poor policy. Some older people just want to blame younger generations for problems that THEY THEMSELVES CREATED, or that they are imagining. Instead of focusing on the fact that it’s older generations that caused massive income inequality, wage stagnation and increased inflation.

    • Posted by Susan Raezer, at Reply

      The Real Concert King The older generation had nothing to do with massive income inequality, wage stagnation or increased inflation. The problem is an oversupply of labor, for the available jobs. Before the 1970’s most women stayed home and raised their children. Then came the “so called woman’s movement”, not backed by any women I know. I think it was a stunt, paid for by banks and industry. What happened? Inflation went nuts, for no reason, credit cards came in the mail every week, telling you to buy, buy, buy. No one mentioned the 30% payback rate. I think the banks were trying to drive people into debt, so the wife would get a job. Eventually this happened. Next, raises got cut, by 75%. New jobs paid 1/2 as much as the retiree made. The rich were getting richer, so they paid legislators to pass open borders legislation, and ease restrictions on H1B visas. Until we get the excess labor out of the market, by exporting them, wages will not rise. Maybe, when they do, a man will be able to support his family again, and his wife can stay home with his children, at least until they are in school.

      Social Liberals were behind feminism, as well the civil rights movement, massive undocumented immigration, LGBT liberation and acceptance of the physically & mentally disabled. Now you’re saying corporate conservatism/ capitalism are behind these equality or tolerance movements? Susan, where did you get this info? +

    • Posted by Susan Raezer, at Reply

      Michael I lived through it. I remember them marching in the streets, for women’s rights, and equal pay. They weren’t your low paid factory women. They were lawyers, and movie stars, and professional women of all types. Civil rights was mostly blacks and college students. LGBT was pushed by people seeking equal rights. Acceptance of the physically and mentally disabled was led in large part, by returning soldiers. Undocumented immigration is a corporate plot, to flood the market with workers, to drive down wages. They have the flag wavers of the DNC supporting these programs through hefty campaign donations. They are working hard, to have the poor vote against their own best interests. If we remove illegals, we narrow the amount of competition for the lower skilled jobs. Citizens, who are on food stamps, and in government housing, will have a chance to have dignity, and a job, for maybe the first time in their lives. You’ve probably noticed, that they don’t run in a bunch of illegals, who are educated, that might compete for their jobs.

    • Posted by Michael, at Reply

      About “illegals”, a loaded term against undocumented (esp Hispanic or Latino) immigrants, I’m in So CA where we have race issues with Mexican-Americans in our history. Anti-immigration rhetoric is also anti-Mexican rhetoric, the idea “Mexicans are invading America, taking our jobs, overcrowded cities, overwhelmed public social services, and destroying the culture” and the PC movement tried to tell us not to oppose undocumented immigration, if you do, you must “hate Latinos” or want to racially oppress, marginalize, discriminate, segregate & even harm Mexicans. It became a “racial/ethnic/nationalist” thing, but I know you meant illegal aliens are used by corporations to reduce wages, break strikes & weaken unions. This has nothing to do with them being “brown, indigenous/mestizo or Spanish-speaking” since Mexican-Americans lived in the southwest US for , in some cases, 2-4 centuries (Tejanos, Chicanos or Hispanos). And the liberal mindset of “diversity, tolerance & acceptance of Mexicans who recently arrived across the border, compared to 2-5 generations of Mexican-Americans born on US soil (formerly Mexican lands) had a history of racism against them, they organized the Chicano or La Raza movements in the 1960s/70s to gain long-deprived political power & economic strength of their communities. I believe liberals want to encourage illegal or undocumented immigration because of “white guilt” of the US “stolen” Mexican land in the mid-19th century war, like we owe them land, but why is it 30-50 million Mexicans or Chicanos want to live in the US not Mexico? Jobs, money & US corporations wanted them in to, as examples: pick cropfields, keep lawns, clean pools, make beds, cook food, take care of kids or elderly, & maintain homes of Americans…very cheaply. +

    • Posted by Aaron Humphreys, at Reply

      Boomers own homes, businesses, and dealerships because adjusted for inflation they bought them for 1/6th the price.

      It always delights me to see a delusional boomer comment. Your entire age cohort is substantially less educated than ours. Boomers with only high school diplomas made enough money working for someone else that they could afford a house, a new car, a housewife, and pay their children’s tuition. That was all at minimum wage or barely above minimum wage.

      To pretend like that’s possible today is willful ignorance to a gross degree.

  6. Posted by Peter Romero, M.Ed., at Reply

    As a Baby Boomer I don’t think it is fair to blame Millennials on retail and restaurant problems and closures. For example, as a kid going out to eat was considered special–a big deal. For example, there was only one McDonald’s hamburger restaurant that was several miles away. Today, there are multiple chains in every city. In my 20’s, living down in Redondo Beach, Ca., my cousin and I wanted to open up a wine tasting room in Hermosa Beach. We were denied because of the number of already established bars, liquor stores, and restaurants serving alcohol. Too much competition was cutting into everyone’s profits. I presently live one mile to three Starbucks, two Coffee Bean, and one Mantra Coffee House. When I choose one, the others loose a sale. The same is true for fast food chains, restaurants, and retail stores. There is just so much money to go around.

    • Posted by Peter Romero, M.Ed., at Reply

      I suggest taking those degrees, ambition, and energy into the blue collar sectors where there is a need for new technology, engineering, and science.

    • Posted by Michael West, at Reply

      Peter Romero, M.Ed. Rephrase that for me because that makes no sense

      Are you talking trade are you talking science?

    • Posted by Peter Romero, M.Ed., at Reply

      Both. Do you not see that trades use application science? The majority of students go to universities to get degrees for white collar positions. However, they find the job market saturated and difficult to apply for. Most people see blue collar workers as only physical labor, and yet the fields of electronics, construction. transportation, manufacturing, and other blue collar positions use applied science to develop new technologies that can benefit businesses, customers, and environmental issues. Does that help clarify?

    • Posted by Michael West, at Reply

      Peter Romero, M.Ed. In a way
      But those jobs scare the surface, and depending on the student, those jobs won’t give them the control

      Trade science ( if you will) only allow you to use science discovered. You can experiment with that science but your still coasting off of its achievements your not the one making those achievements because your still taking a flash to a dark room instead of turning on the light via light switch. A trade engineer and scientific engineer progress at two entirely different rates

      Plus in my opinion I just think companies would rather you take up trade so they can hire or fire you, I mean if you have a degree in higher learning your more likely to be their competitor, by law they have to be you more and more companies who value what you think

      So in the end I’m not anti trade schools but if more people went to trade schools instead of college, CEO’s wouldn’t have to worry about sharing the playing field and there be a generation less educated in the work force so I get what your saying but it has its flaws

    I’m 66 years old, and my hat’s off to the Millennials for not buying into the greed and marketing hype of my generation. Now you guys need to hold the robber barons of our day accountable for their theft of our country and the world’s resources. Maybe have them pay some taxes, and help fund all the security they enjoy at your expense.

    • Posted by Ruth Felix, at Reply

      Speak for yourself. I’m also 66, but I never bought into the greed and marketing hype. I worked hard to provide for my own Millennial son, as have most of my own family and friends for Millennials of their own. I don’t regret it, but I will be damned if I let anyone criticizes my entire generation. My generation ended the war in Vietnam and the draft, and marched for civil rights, AND started the entire “Save our Environment” movement, plus. And there are plenty Millennials today who are depending on our generation, whether we can afford it or not, to pay the student loans we co-signed for them.

    • Posted by Ruth Felix, at Reply

      This video is really silly, and if keeps bringing up such dumb stuff, I am going to seriously “clam up” and go away because they are misinforming the public. Our generation is not blaming Millennials. Now if businesses are blaming Millennials for killing their businesses, then they needed killing – they couldn’t cut it business wise. And I didn’t mean that all Millennials are making their parents pay their student loans, but unlike you, some do because many Millennials can’t find jobs that pay well, thanks to cheap foreign labor across the world, and imported, that our youth have to compete with because greedy American business owners employ them.

      Just do what we do in Australia, the amount you pay off your student debt is directly linked to how much you make and is taken out along with tax. Earn more, pay more. Having trouble and not earning much, pay less.

The war is always circumstantial and i’m always grateful for the bravery and the loss they endured for the next generation to prosper but lets not call this generation useless because we can easily see the stupid people that always have existed in society. Sorry you feel that first generation immigrants are not productive in this country, give us a little more time and how about you open your eyes to all the immigrants who have created 40% of the tech industry we love today or the students who are hard at work becoming doctors and engineers? Most of american youth are too focused on the liberal arts department while the immigrants are hard at work trying to create a foothold in this country and prosper through means their parents deem honorable and lucrative because their parents have lived a life of worry. America will always welcome and need immigrants to spark that hard work mentality to keep it number one.

      Excuse me? Where and how did you come to the conclusion that I in any way don’t take my education seriously?? Just because I am a latina and in your eyes an anchor baby. FYI 1. No I’m not a nurse ( even though it a very honorable job) but I am actually getting my PhD in Social Phycology. I take school very seriously. 2. I am not an anchor baby, my mother was a resident when I was born. 3. I embrace both of my cultures. I am Mexican American and proud of both. 4. I pay for my own education (no grants no help) And I work damn hard to pay for it. I pay attention to all my lectures and work hard on all my assignments. It is sad that you generalize a ethnicity like that. Yes latina is an ethnicity because our race is either white or Native American. Because if you payed attention in any history or sociology class you would have learned that the western part of the United States was land of many Mexican farmers. Their lands were taken by many English settlers and they had not only their land taken but also their citizenship away. So please do not go around generalizing a whole group because you have some kind of bitterness towards them (I refuse to call you racist because I don’t know you so I can’t say that about you) but I can say what I read and you are generalizing.
