I've always wondered this myself... now I know.
- People born before 1946 were called The Silent generation..
- The Baby Boomers, are people born between 1946 and 1959.
- Generation X, people have been born between 1960 and 1979.
- Generation Y , are the people born between 1980 and 2010
Why do we call the last group Generation Y?
A cartoonist explained it very eloquently below....
And I always thought it was because they say....
Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
Y should I clean my room?
Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
Y should I buy any food?
