If you were born from 1962-71, you may be part of #GenerationGrumpy. You’re not alone, and you’re entirely justified!

According to The New York Times’ Robert Gebeloff, “The generation of people born 1962 to 1971, now in what are typically peak earning years, are finding they are not doing as well as they might have expected….Middle age used to be the peak earning years on the job market, but this is no longer true, especially for men. People 45 to 54 are still earning more than than younger colleagues. What’s changed is on the other side of the age matrix: Older workers have increasingly gained ground on the income scale. The older they are, in fact, the more rapid the ascent up the income rankings.”  Read the full article here.
