Challenges Young Women Face
Nearly half of all Americans aged 18–29 earn under the poverty line. College graduates have more debt than ever. The recession hit Millennials the hardest, who report losing more jobs than any other generation because of the economic downturn.
It's worse for young women. The gap between men and women with full-time employment is largest at this age, and those women who are employed are earning less than their male counterparts.
Unfortunately, human resources professionals perceive Millennials as entitled and unprofessional, the public generally believes that Millennials have poorer work ethics than their older peers.
