What's awesome about that graph is that there are six years' worth of GenZ out there paying taxes on that graph and still

Those four generations add up to 100%.

Here's how fucking dumb it is. You can't even google "Generation Z wealth" or "average Gen Z net worth" or anything related to "Generation Z" or "wealth" because Google throws you Millennials. You can say "Generation Z student loans" tho...

    Every generation is marked with its economic challenges, and for Gen Z, it’s about the rising costs of higher education that is driving debt loads higher, paired with the flattened salary growth curve over the past two decades versus inflation. Approximately three quarters of our survey respondents will have debt upon graduation: 37.9% will have under $25,000, 23.7% between $25,000 to $49,999, 8.4% ranging $50,000-$99,999 and 3.5% will have more than $100,000.

    Our survey found that 61% of college students would take a job they’re not passionate about due to the pressure to pay off their student loans. Related, approximately half of Gen Z respondents disclosed that they would take the first job they’re offered, with 62% naming financial pressure as the reason.

and Google doesn't start talking about Millennials until like the fourth or fifth hit.
