GEN Z STRIKES BACK: 10 TIMES THEY DITCHED BOOMER WISDOM FOR BOLD NEW MOVES

Many Boomers have long touted the mantra of choosing a stable, high-paying job over pursuing personal passions.

PRIORITIZING PASSION OVER PROFIT

The traditional 9-5 workday is also being challenged by Gen Z, who are advocating for more flexible work schedules.

REJECTING THE 9-5 WORKDAY

Yet, Gen Z is moving away from this perspective, valuing experiences and personal growth over accumulating possessions.
