Kresta in the Afternoon – March 14, 2014 – Hour 1: GUEST HOST PETER HERBECK

+  What Could Go Wrong? Millennials are underemployed, unhitched, and unchurched at record rates.

  • Description: The portrait painted of Millennial Americans by the Pew Research Center in its new report Millennials in Adulthood is not rosy. Sure, compared with earlier generations, Millennials (now aged 18 to 33) are exceptionally tolerant, optimistic about their economic future, and connected to friends, family, and colleagues on the “new platforms of the digital era” — from Facebook to Twitter. But this report makes clear that Millennial ties to the core human institutions that have sustained the American experiment — work, marriage, and civil society — are worryingly weak. We get into the numbers and the analysis with Brad Wilcox of Institute for Family Studies.
