Example text

And the congenial social group of the baby boomers was decidedly uncongenial toward anyone aged 30 and older. The leading edge of the baby boom spurred a massive rebellion against authority. It is not surprising that such a generation arose from the rigid world of the 1950s. First, the sheer numbers of baby boomers created a powerful teenage subculture. Businesses exploited the huge market, offering teens music and clothes that defied parental authority and the conformity of their parents' world.

Each year, one in five people aged 20 to 24 changes careers. 26 Waitresses become secretaries; truck drivers become factory workers. Only 12% of people aged 25 to 34 and 7% of 35- to 44-year-olds change careers in a year. Overall, Americans can expect to change careers three time in their lives. In middle age, many baby boomers will turn their jobs into a career. Among 30- to 44-year-olds, 58% regard their work as a career. 27 That's what all the job hopping is about-finding a better salary, a better job title, and ultimately finding work that offers more than a paycheck.

40 CHAPTER 2 Until 1940, men and women were almost equally likely to go to college. 35 Between 1940 and 1970, as the feminine mystique took hold, men made significantly greater educational gains than women, creating a large gap in the percentage of men and women with a college degree. In 1970, 20% of men but only 13% of women aged 25 to 29 had graduated from college. The babyboom women are closing this gap, however. By 1985, 23% of women and 25% of men aged 25 to 34 had been to college for four or more years.
