Every day I see these headlines, “Millennials are killing” this or that. Just a few days ago I learned that Millennials “endanger” casual dining restaurants like Buffalo Wild Wings and Applebee’s…
Now it seems we’re “killing” dozens of industries!
I don’t want anyone to lose their jobs, but I’ve never been a fan of corporate, “casual dining” style restaurant chains. I’d rather eat at some mom & pop joint that has some authenticity than pay for the “atmosphere” in a place like TGI Friday’s. I think that may be part of it, but the bigger issue is that Millennials are POOR! It’s not just that we have different values than our parents, a lot of my friends couldn’t afford to go to these restaurants even if they wanted to, or they only go for special occasions like birthdays or graduations.
I thought the second article I linked did a pretty good job breaking down this issue. Any thoughts on the “dozens of industries” we’re killing off by being frugal, cooking, drinking, and entertaining ourselves at home?
