Millennials not as selfish as some people think

Those born between the early 1980s and 2000s are sometimes described as wanting it all without having to work for it.

But UBC policy professor Paul Kershaw says the reality is these millennials are willing to accept less than previous generations. They live in smaller spaces and try to manage without a car.

“Those are major adaptations compared to the past that I don’t think younger generations get credit for,” Kershaw said.
