Millennials Facing Challenges In Workplace

by New England Cable News   •  

Millennials in the workplace face challenges in being competitive nowadays. 

Mark Edwards, Executive Director of Organization Opportunity Nation, weighed in. His company works to increase economic opportunity among Americans.

A millennial is a person who reached young adulthood around the year 2000. People who fall between the ages of 16 and 30 are classified as millennials according to Edwards.

Edwards said millennials are not prepared for some jobs because of the numerous challenges in their lives.

Communities don’t do well when they have a vast amount of millennials out of work.  “We’ve got to come up with much more flexible ways to make sure they stay connected,” said Edwards.
