Millennials we take a lot of heat. I know you’ve heard the stereotypes-entitled, parentally dependent, emotionally fragile. But it also hasn’t been easy, so you can’t place all the blame on us. And if you’re reading this in one of the Carolina’s then it really hasn’t been easy. In fact, North Carolina and South Carolina both rank in the bottom half of states for millennials. This is according to a new study by Wallethub.
Millennials are currently the largest generation, with a population of around 80 million. This means that millennials have a huge influence on American culture and consumption. But statistically, most are economically worse off than their parents.
The millennial experience is not the same everywhere. WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia to determine where this generation has thrived and struggled. They examined each state and DC across 34 key metrics to determine the best and worst states for millennials. Both Carolinas ranked in the bottom half making them two of the worst states.
