Part 2: First spend-setters, now stress-setters? Millennials are officially America’s most stressed generation
We recently touched on the notoriously heavy spending habits of millennials in a blog post and infographic, revealing that this generation will spend $1.4 trillion annually by 2020 – accounting for 30% of U.S. retail sales.
