So, who are the “Generation Xers” and what do they expect from Healthcare Reform? Generally, these are those who were born between the early 1960’s to the early 1980’s. That would make them age 30-something to 50’ish today. Reports vary on what this generation looks like:
● According to The Social Librarian, “This was the first generation of ‘latchkey’ kids, exposed to lots of daycare and divorce… Gen X is often characterized by high levels of skepticism, ‘what’s in it for me’ attitudes… Gen Xers are arguably the best educated generation… (but) concerns run high over avoiding broken homes… and financial planning”.
● In contrast, CNN.Living reports that “Generation X is active, balanced and happy… a generation of technologically savvy, and adventurous pragmatists”.
● Finally, Forbes says that of all the generations, Gen X is experiencing the most financial hardship.
