OKLAHOMA CITY NAMED A MILLENNIAL BOOMTOWN
Millennials (those born between about 1982 and 1996) have overtaken Baby Boomers as the largest generation in the U.S. labor force — that’s one-in-three of workers or people looking for work.
With limitations on immigration and Baby Boomers retiring at an accelerating pace, businesses large and small are increasingly dependent on the Millennial segment of the population to fill the jobs and do the work.
A recent report by MagnifyMoney, a LendingTree-owned company, scored the biggest Millennial boomtowns in America. Results of the study showed that while the Millennial population is on the uptick, this critical cohort of the labor force is growing and prospering more in some places than others.
