Are “Generation X” slackers? That is the rumor that’s become popular. “Generation X” are the 84 million Americans born from 1961 to 1981. They are now 30 to 50. A generation of slackers? Not so! A new study says the generation, once nicknamed “the slacker generation” are today just as hardworking and family-oriented as other generations. Gen X is growing up. Once they were predicted to be disconnected and isolated, but the prophecies failed and the prophets shamed. Study author Jon Miller says, “On the whole they are a pretty resilient group.” They “tweet”, text message and post online. 68% are married; 71% have children at home; 33% are active members of a church and the number is increasing as more turn to faith to anchor their life.
